History & Geography │ Intro to World History - Year 2 of 2
This second part of Intro to World History helps kids see that history has a real impact on how we live today. Discover together that there are real historical answers to questions such as: Why did castles, knights and jousting tournaments fade away? Why do Americans use inches instead of centimeters? Why aren't there very many Kings and Queens in the world anymore? Why do children study Math and Science? Why do people from different cultures tend to view the world so differently?
Go way beyond Europe. Our purpose is not simply to trace the roots of Western civilization, but to acquire an overview of how civilizations have developed all over the world. This means Europe, the Americas, Asia, the Middle East, Australia and Africa.
As your children see the flow of world history--the rise and fall of civilizations--they get a big-picture look at what's gone into creating history. That, in turn, helps them understand how we live today.
Snuggle up, experience history and enjoy several "just for fun" books that simply help kids love reading. From an operatic cricket to mighty Italian stallions, these works are pure delights!
Whether your child is a voracious reader or still catching his or her stride, our Readers Program will meet them at their ability level. Receive a whole stack of exciting books your kids can successfully read on their own. Simply choose the program that matches your child's reading level using the Customize Tab. For help determining your child's reading level please review this Quick Reading Assessment.
