I am 99.9% sure that next year we'll be using The Story of the World: History for the Classical Child, Volume 1 as part of Charis's education. I'm thankful our library system has the different volumes and activity books because I've been able to go through it in depth and come to a decision. I was on the fence about purchasing the activity book, but I will.
Things I like about The Story of the World Activity Book One: Ancient Times:
The read aloud suggestions. One thing I have hope to do for a long time in being a mother is reading aloud to my children. I grew up with a mother who believed reading aloud to us was beneficial (even in high school). Eventually, I viewed myself as being too old to be read aloud to... but a little secret (or not so little secret), when I was in high school, I would often stop outside my mother's class room and listen to her read to her students.
The activity projects. Often I am unimaginative, but my daughter enjoys painting and art. She is a hands on learner.
For those wondering. No, I have not drunk the Kool-Aid and gone full force into Classical education (there are some issues that Drew and I have with Classical education). Even though we disagree with a few things does not mean we need to throw out everything and try to come up with something new.
Do you homeschool your children? What curriculum do you use?
