History Odyssey Middle Ages Levels One and Two. Why do I buy these anymore? We never stick to anyone else’s schedule. Maybe that’s not the point. We do love using their list of what supplementary activities we should be using. Last year (this year still) I got the History Odyssey Ancients Levels 1 and 3 I don’t know why I didn’t get Level 2 because I have a daughter who is at level 2- I just figured that it would be easy to find a middle between the materials in level 1 and 3 but it wasn’t at all, so I’m inventing things for her to do at level 2. Why didn’t I just order level 2 this time? I ordered for next year, so I got next year’s level 2. That just doesn’t help us this year, though. Anyways, I didn’t order level 3 for nest year this time because it wasn’t listed in the catalog or on their website, but I know the publisher is making it. We’re just barely into the 1st level three book we’ve got and it’s really really difficult. My oldest hates it. It’s a great program, but it’s just a wee bit too hard for her and we end up doing it together. I know she relishes the time we’re spending together with it, but I end up only “doing” history with her once a week or so because of it, and we skip so much of each lesson. I remember why I’m buying these, because History Odyssey rearranges the chapters in Story of the World so that you’re studying a specific region for a little longer, instead of bouncing around the globe every week and History Odyssey also recommends awesome supplementary activity books. So maybe I’m buying these for the lists of supplementary ideas, and black-lined maps, and the order that they put the SOTW chapters into.
