Studies in World History Vol. 1 7th Grade Curriculum #REVIEW #MASTERBOOKS

This month's review from Masterbooks is exciting.  It is a complete history curriculum for 7th grade.  While we are not actually schooling in August (in NJ our public schools go back in September) my middle son and I took some time to over view the books.

What we received:

Studies in World History Vol. 1 - Teacher Guide

- this book includes:

  • Answer keys
  • Daily Calendar
  • Daily Worksheets
  • Weekly Exams

Studies in World History Vol. 1 - Student book

This book includes 34 chapters with weekly reading lessons and discussion questions.  

My Thoughts:

I love the length of time this book covers.  You start with the Flood and end with Christopher Columbus.  It would be great for a child who hasn't spent a lot of time studying World History and needs to get a course in one year.  The readings are easy and informative.  Each page has fantastic pictures (which I think set this curriculum apart!)  The worksheets mostly writing exercises.  We did them orally for the few lessons we read just to save time.  Overall I was really impressed!


Creation Through the age of Discovery (6000 BC to AD 1500)
  • Chronologically based, but focused more on skill development
  • Meant to be a 20 to 30 minute experience every day
  • World history is combined with social studies in a one-year course.
The Jr. High School student will see history come to life no matter what their pace or ability. Developed by Dr. James Stobaugh, the courses grow in difficulty with each year, preparing students for high school work. This is a comprehensive examination of history, geography, economics, and government systems. This educational set equips students to learn from a starting point of God's creation of the world and move forward with a solid biblically-based worldview.
Volume I Covers - The Fertile Crescent, Egypt, India, China, Japan, Greece, Christian history, and more.

Studies in World History Vol 1 is available at Be sure to stop there to see  additional information about this curriculum.  

Don't miss the Moms of Masterbooks Facebook party on Tuesday, August 26, 2014 at 7pm CST.  We will discuss the book and there will be an awesome giveaway!
