How does MOH work for all ages?
At the end of each lesson, there are activities created specifically for elementary, junior high, and high school users. The lessons are written at a 4th-8th grade level, so it is simple enough for young users to understand while still containing plenty of scholastic information for the older students. By choosing hands-on activities and projects that are appropriate for the student’s age, you could have a Kindergartener and High School student studying together!
Are all of the supplemental resources required?
Yes and no. We created the supplemental resources to enhance your experience with MOH. We want history to be as memorable, practical, and easy-to-use as possible. Most of them are not required, but we do highly recommend them. There are a few things you will need though, including a good historical atlas and a Bible atlas, and both the Reader and Companion Guide are necessary for Volume III, Volume IV has the Companion Guide included.
Is MOH meaty enough for high school students? Could it work as our American history course?
Yes! MOH is very adaptable to any age. Along with the appropriate activities provided for high school students, you may choose to supplement these with additional essays, reading, or related projects. This will work to fulfill high school credit requirements.
Yet, we do not suggest you use MOH as an American History course because it covers history all over the world, not America specifically. If you are looking for an interactive American History course, check out All American History.
I’ve heard of a lot of people who supplement MOH with other curricula. This makes me nervous. Is MOH not enough?
MOH is plenty on its own, it is a complete curriculum. There are several reasons people supplement. Some parents supplement to meet the needs of their children’s extreme interest levels. Others are striving to meet different learning styles of their children. Some homeschoolers are simply “curriculum junkies” (we have some on our staff!) who have trouble stopping at just one and not using everything that’s out there.
If you love MOH and wish you had a full curriculum that centers around your history study and uses MOH as a spine, take a look at our Illuminations curriculum.
Will MOH work well for my co-op?
Yes! MOH is straightforward enough that it is simple to use in a co-op setting. The activities and other supplemental resources you can get a hold of are great for multiple users. You can even purchase in bulk and receive a 30% discount or look into getting a hold of a co-op license to save in costs.
What’s new in the second edition of Volume 1?
We have made some wonderful changes to this classic text. For starters, we have:
- Updated the lessons to reflect the most current research,
- Included additional teacher support information,
- Added answer key maps for the geography component,
- Changed or added new illustrations for many lessons,
- Added 114+ pages of information, activities, resource lists, and more!
I need advice on how to do a timeline or complete an activity. What do other families do?
If you need advice on how other families do things, connect with us on our Facebook page or in one of our Facebook groups! It’s a great place to ask your questions and interact with other families using The Mystery of History!
