We plan to release a revision of The Story of the World, Volume 4 in the late spring/early summer of 2021. This will include updates to the text (written and audio formats) and the Activity Book, as well as other curriculum components. This revision will be similar in style to the revision we made to The Story of the World, Volume 3 - Revised Edition in 2020.
The Story of the World, Volume 4 is intended for 4th-8th grade students, so we "leveled up" the content of the Student Pages. We kept the Review Cards and Coloring Pages and added replaced Timeline Cards and Outline Pages, which are more appropriate for middle-elementary students. Each timeline card depicts a significant person or event, and states the important date(s) and the chapter which discusses the person/event.
You will be able to use the original edition’s Test Book, Written Comprehension Questions, and Coloring Pages with the Revised Edition.
If you would like to be notified when we are going to ship The Story of the World, Volume 4, you can follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.
Or, you can sign up for our newsletter. You will also be notified of sales, special offers and updates about our curriculum.
Here is the "catalog"-style information about the 2021 revision to The Story of the World-4.
Spend an entire year investigating the fascinating story of the modern world, from the American Civil War through the end of the twentieth century--from Europe and the Middle East through India, China, the Arabian Peninsula, Australia, and both North and South America!
