The Modern Age History Cards coordinate with Story of the World, Volume 4 (Modern Age), by Susan Wise Bauer. There are two sets of cards per SOTW volume; set 1 covers chapters 1-21, set 2 covers chapters 22-42. Each card coordinates with one chapter within SOTW and contains artwork, a memory sentence, summary, and map relating to a specific historical event. The Modern Age History Cards (set 1 and 2) will take the student from Victoria’s Reign to the end of the USSR. 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.
Printed Cards: If you don’t have access to a printer, the printed cards are available. Products are printed on a heavy duty laser jet printer on high quality 90 lb cardstock. The 4.5″ x 8″ double sided cards are individually laminated for durability.
