The Ancient History Cards coordinate with Story of the World, vol 1 (Ancient Times), by Susan Wise Bauer. There are two sets of cards per SOTW volume; set 1 covers chapters 1-22, set 2 covers chapters 23-42. Each card coordinates with one chapter within SOTW and contains artwork, a memory sentence, summary, and map relating to a specific historical event. The Ancient History Cards (set 1 and 2) will take the student through ancient history, from early nomads to the split of the Roman Empire. Both card sets contain additional information – memory work recommended by The Well-Trained Mind, by Jessie Wise and Susan Wise Bauer. For convenience, these Memory Cards are clearly identified with an ‘M.’
Our History Cards are designed to be easily transported so that you can review your history lesson and memory sentence anywhere. The memory sentences, if consistently practiced, will establish important history facts in your child’s mind that they will remember for years to come. For more information on the cards and how to use them, please see our “About History Cards” page.
The Ancient History Cards are available in two formats: downloadable pdf file and printed cards. For ease and convenience we recommend that you purchase the discounted downloadable file which allows you to permanently own the cards and print them at your convenience. If you don’t have access to a printer, the printed cards are available on 65 lb. card stock and laminated for durability.
