Try A Lesson sample from Volume III.

The MOH author, Linda Lacour Hobar, has a bachelor's degree from Baylor University, 14 years of homeschool experience, 17 years in ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ, and several years teaching small groups and church classes. Linda brings a wealth of perspective to the subject of World History. As a parent, a missionary, and a teacher, her personable writing style appeals to all ages.

Mystery of History, a complete World History curriculum features:

  • A Classical Approach - In the context of world history, The Mystery of History series explores the backdrops behind and the significance surrounding the time-honored contributions found in art, music, literature, science, and philosophy. Those who use the MOH series will find it structured to follow a Classical approach to teaching through the trivium with an emphasis on reading, writing, research, and hands-on activities.
  • A Chronological Order of Historical Events - MOH teaches History in chronological order, beginning with Creation. The Mystery of History is a four-volume world history series in the making, which will take you around the globe through the study of chronological events. (Though recommended, it is not necessary to complete the volumes in the order they are written.) Presently three volumes are available.
  • A Christian Worldview - The Mystery of History is written from a Christian world view and uniquely weaves world cultures and stories of the past alongside the history of Christianity. Given MOH is written with a distinctly Christian worldview, the lessons are designed to "reveal a much bigger picture and tell a much larger story - one that points toward God's plan for mankind".
**NOTE** Although MOH was originally written for Grades 4-8, the teacher manual gives information to adapt the program for Kindergarten through highschool levels, making the program ideal for multi-age teaching.

We are just finishing our first year with Mystery of History and bought the book for year two. I thought the ancient history would be a little much for young kids but they have enjoyed it, absorbed it and can relate much of it back. I love the solid Christian perspective and I love connecting the Scriptures with the rest of world history. It has been a great education for me too as I teach the material!
T. Tadros, Co-op Member
I am using Volume 1 with an eight and an 11 year old and they are enjoying the short daily readings and the activities and research projects. I often bump the kids up a level in terms of the suggested activities, and sometimes I find myself assigning alternate projects, but overall I like having the sequence and assignments mapped out for me and appreciate having one curriculum for both children. My biggest reservation in recommending this curriculum would be that unless you are a young earth creationist, you will not get much benefit out of...(more)

MOH is such a fantastic history curriculum! We have used it for many years and this year I thought maybe I needed to switch things up and try a different one. It lasted less than a week, and we were back to MOH! I like it because it gives thorough information, is interesting, easy to use, and is very flexible. I can use it with multiple levels, pick and choose my activities, go deeper into certain topics, and cover geography and include timeline activities. I really appreciate the Christian worldview presented in the text, and the lessons are n...(more)

I love how everything is laid out in one place! I don't have to go from book to book searching for different worksheets! Thank you for making teaching history so much easier!
M. Otteman, Co-op Member
I have been excited to use Mystery of History for quite a few years! I had heard about it but wanted to wait till my daughter was in 5th grade before we started the series. We have been using it now for about 3 weeks and we love it!! My daughter is excited to do her lessons and enjoys the activites as they are different every day!! My husband and I are really pleased with the way it incorporates the Bible lessons in with the order of other historical events. We feel it will help her to see that the Bible is not just a story!! We give this...(more)

My 16 year old daughter has gone through every volume. She loves it. As a mom, I find it super duper user friendly. It is designed for all ages as you pick and choose what activities to do. It has made my daughter who hates history to actually love doing history! Story of the World is similar in approach! But I actually find MOH to work better in older children. I highly recommend this curriculum! Use as much or little as you like but the more you do the more our children learn! Two thumbs up!!
Karen Smith, Co-op Member
Mystery of History books have been a great addition to our curriculum. My son really enjoys history now and finds it interesting thanks to these books and activities.
Kris B, Co-op Member
This book is very interesting and we have fun reading it together. I have learned so much by reading this to my daughter. My daughter was amazed at some of the historical events especially King Tut. I am thinking about putting my daughter in a private homeschooling type of school and even if I do I will for sure continue doing this with her. Recently my dad came to visit from out of state and he just happened to pick it up and started looking at it. Before I knew it he couldn't put it down. Excellent high interest material and written very well...(more)

This is a wonderful history curriculum! Linda does and excellent job of making the history come alive. My daughter has several learning disabilities, and MOH is perfect for her. I can choose what level of activities will work best for her learning style. We also use the book on CD. My daughter follows along, in the book, while Linda reads the lesson. Linda's voice is so pleasant. My daughter also loves MOH! I love it so much I am volunteering at the MOH booth at a homeschool conference!
Lori, Co-op Member
I have wanted to use this product for years and now I am so glad we are able to use it.

My kids and I love it they ask if they can do it each day.

If you are thinking about doing Mystery-of-history do it is great.
