The Story of the World Vol. 1: Ancient Times, Test Book


Assess older students and keep a record of work with the Test Book and Answer Key. There are 42 tests, one for each chapter of The Story of the World Volume 1: Ancient Times – perfect for evaluating comprehension and retention!

Product Overview

The narrative format of The Story of the World Volume 1: Ancient Times helps children remember the famous people, places, and events in history. These tests, a combination of multiple choice, matching, fill-in-the-blanks, and short writing samples, offer you an easy way to evaluate your child’s retention and comprehension of key events.

Let’s be clear: We’d just as soon you didn’t administer tests to your six-year-old. Poor thing; she’s still trying to remember how that whole shoelace thing works, plus lunch always seems to be seventeen hours away. But if you’re using Volume 1 with a slightly older student, test away.

    Melissa Wheeler

    I love it. It keeps my two younger kids enthralled, It’s written in a way they comprehend exactly what history is and how it began.

  2. Jennifer

    For administering the tests (for an older student), are they best used as a closed book test?

  3. jamie kampman

    Can I use this test guide for my high schooler, who will be doing the High School Ancient Times?

  4. Kelsie

    Does this contain the answer key, or is that a separate purchase?
