Every time I tackle the book Mystery of History (MOH) with my kids I need ideas for crafts and projects to put in their portfolio. Sometimes, I use the suggested activities in the books. But other times, I think of an activity my kids can do using things I already have around the house. Or, I do my own research and find free stuff online. I love free stuff!
Right now, I have two kids going through MOH. My eldest son is doing Volume III and my second son is doing Volume I. Next year, I intend to do just one volume for the entire family. It was crazy covering two separate volumes this year. Learn from my mistake. It’s called a multi-level curriculum for good reason!
Here is what I have so far for Volume I – Creation to Christ (Quarter 1). I will add to this list whenever I can and if you have your own ideas, please let me know so I can include them here, too. Hope these help to make your homeschooling a little easier! (Some of these are home-made, some are ideas I picked up on-line, and others are free resources). With internet resources, please be present to monitor your child:

Hi Joy! Great stuff 🙂 may I ask how you resolved the difference in level you mentioned above where one child was Vol. 1 and the other was Vol. 3? How did you merge it into just one volume since there is a considerable gap between their levels…thanks in advance 🙂
I have been examinating out many of your posts and i can state clever stuff. I will make sure to bookmark your blog.
Thanks Joy! This is indeed helpful. These are all great activities. I am pretty sure this links you shared will be part of my “go to” as we go along our MOH Vol1. Once again, thanks for this compilation. MWAHHHH!
