The online program is based on the book A Child’s History of the World, by Calvert School’s first Head Master, Virgil Hillyer. Originally published in 1924, it has been revised over the years.
A Child’s History of the World Online Enrichment is an interactive multimedia history program appropriate for ages 9 and up. World history is brought to life through 91 short and entertaining stories based on events from the Stone Age to the present, told in a warm, easy-to-understand manner. The stories include text, original art, original music, and opportunities for student interaction. Stories are followed by review questions and games that are computer-scored.
