Wars of Independence to Modern Times
by Linda Lacour Hobar
The Mystery of History Volume IV is now available! Volume IV unfolds three centuries of word history, from the wars of independence to modern times (1708- present) with author Linda Hobarís distinctly Christian perspective.
The Student Reader now contains 84 stirring lessons in a colorful, easy-to-hold hardback. The reader is a stand alone world history text for all ages to enjoy. (See note below.) But for those who wish to delve deeper, we have included The Mystery of History Volume IV Companion Guide. The reproducible resources of the Companion Guide (included on an included CD rom), written also by Linda Hobar, contain familiar and popular components of The Mystery of History series: pretests; hands-on/research activities for younger, middle, and older students; memory card ideas; bi-weekly quizzes and exercises; timeline helps; maps; supplemental book lists; and more.
Though it is recommended that Volumes I through III be studied prior to this volume, it is not necessary. Volume IV can stand alone as a full course of modern world history.
Recommended for grades 6 and up: Please note that The Mystery of HistoryVolume IV is not on the same reading level as The Mystery of History Volume I. The Mystery of History Volume IV is best suited for children in 6th grade and up. Younger siblings can tag along for the history lessons, but the reading level and emotional intensity of The Mystery of History Volume IV will be challenging for them. Expect to make modifications to help children younger than sixth grade grasp the material.
