My daughter, Madeline, is 6 years old and in the first grade. I feel very fortunate to have found The Mystery of History at the beginning of our homeschool journey. The writing style touches me deeply and the activities really engage my daughter. The timeline is her favorite part of the curriculum and we spend a lot of time coloring the figures. Sometimes we’ve even made our own for something that I wanted to further clarify. I have access to a laminating machine, so I laminate them after we color them to protect the figures from my curious 3 year old! We glue googly eyes on them just for a fun touch! The Mystery of History has been an enormous blessing in our home this year!
