I really like the Apologia elementary sciences, is there anything out there that is a similiar in style for history?  (or anything that is chronological)

Story of the World by Susan Bauer Wise is chronological.  That is what we are using.

We have enjoyed Mystery of History.  We've also used Veritas Press.  Both are good, Veritas is more classical, Mystery is easier to use with children of different ages at the same time.

I've recently reviewed a portfolio for a family using Mystery of History; I was quite impressed with its thoroughness and layout.  While I cobbled together my children's history years ago using Greenleaf books, Landmark histories, and Susan Bauer Wise recommendations, homeschoolers today can spend more time on the subject and less time on the hunt for the resources!

Here's another vote for Mystery of History - we are continuing with Volume II this year.

We also are using Mystery of History vol 2 this year.  We completed vol 1 a few years ago and enjoyed it.  We have used Story of the World in the past, as well as many others.
