Customer Reviews for Walch Education Short Lessons in World History, Fourth Edition

Walch Education Short Lessons in World History, Fourth Edition

From Sumer to the high gas prices of 2005, this collection of 87 lessons feature engaging text, time lines, maps, pre-reading questions, quizzes, activities, puzzles, and mini-biographies to dramatize critical events and places over the last 7,000 years. Newly introduced words are bolded and defined in the margins for easy vocabulary building, while "critical thinking" boxes throughout the lessons provide a point for students to stop, think, and apply what they've learned. The perfect add-on to a traditional world history course, or may be used as a complete program. A glossary and answer key for the puzzles/assessments are included. Grades 6-9. 204 pages, softcover.

  • The First Civilized People

    We homeschool and I bought this book as a reference book to help me build the curriculum around. The lessons are good and this is a great resource to build the curriculum around. It gives an overall view of history, and gives you a good frame to build your curriculum around.
    Keep in mind you will have to find more resources to supplement this book. overall I'm satisfied with the book, it is what I was looking for.

    I bought this book for school and was expecting another boring school book that I had to learn from. But what I didn't know was that I would love it! I am so glad that I purchased it! If you are considering it for yourself or for your child I would definitely recommend buying it!
