Megan P of the Well-Trained Mind boards compiled this geographical arrangement of the SOTW chapters. Thank you, Megan, for letting me post it here.

She put it together as a review tool. She says, "I was thinking of doing this with my 10-year-old this summer. We will have just finished SOTW 4 and I thought it might be a good review to just read, without doing any maps, activites, etc. It's somewhat chronological with earlier civilizations being covered first (Egypt, Greece, Rome, Fertile Crescent) as it moves across the globe from Africa to the Far East, then back up to Europe and travelling to the New World. The Roman numeral represents which volume of SOTW and the Arabic numeral is the page number."
