    A cursory glance through this curriculum elicits several descriptive words: detail, depth, creativity, and flexibility. This course combines a textual history of maps and map-making with innumerable activities. Through hand-drawn and edible maps, star charts and video documentaries, games and watercolors, students will see the world portrayed not only as an atlas shows it but also in a way that can't be contained between the covers of a book. There are 60 pages of historical readings (well illustrated with photos, maps, and drawings) which chronicle exploration and mapping from the time of the earliest maps through the 1800s. Accompanying these readings are 90 pages of drawing lessons that guide students step-by-step through freehand drawings of islands, countries, continents, and other geographic locales. There are also over 100 pages of supplemental activities including review worksheets, games, art and craft activities, links to online videos (map projections, virtual tours of globe factories, bios of explorers, etc.), and quizzes. Additional resources supplied with the book are DVDs that contain actual drawing lessons for the map drawing activities and a printable PDF version of the curriculum. While the drawing lessons don't have you labeling every single island, river, or mountain on the planet, the detail of the coastlines, borders, major cities, and main geographic features is such that you should be well prepared for the final project: drawing your own map of the world. Colorful and distinct, this curriculum has enough variance for both the eager and reticent cartographer.

    Travel the world—and learn fun facts—in this game of "Who, Where, and What." This game includes a game board, spinner, 6 cardboard animal pawns, 110 question cards, 60 flag cards, and 50 travel cards. First, players spin the spinner. Depending on where it lands, they draw a Question card, Flag card, or Travel card. Question cards have two questions (followed by detailed answers): one about the manmade world and one about the natural world (ie. "What country is known for its sandy deserts: Algeria, Indonesia, or Vietnam?"). Flag cards have three questions about the country whose flag is pictured on the card (ie. capital cities, language, landmarks). Travel cards have fun challenges to complete (ie. "Name 9 countries that start with the letter 'P'"). Players advance 1 space for each question they answer correctly. The first person to circle the board and cross their own "Start" circle is the winner. Win or lose, players will learn plenty along the way about our amazing world. 2-6 players.

    You won't change the world by playing this game, but you will learn to see the world in shapes! This game is composed of 120 shape cards featuring different shapes or lines with various point values, a category sheet with 10 categories (e.g. transportation or animals), a polyhedral die, a timer and 6 dry erase boards, markers and erasers. To begin, each player draws 7 cards from the draw deck and places them face up in front of them. The die is rolled to choose the category and all players have one minute to draw an item that would fit in the category with only the shapes on their cards. When the time is up, players vote if drawings fit the category and artists get the sum total of all the points on their face up cards - if they used all 7 that is! Any cards not used get deducted from your overall points; if you don't draw anything, you lose 5 points. A game that is simple to learn and fun to play, older players really don't have much of an advantage over younger players. It is surprisingly difficult sometimes to look at the shapes available to you and think what you could draw with them! A dry-erase sheet for making your own categories is also included. Please note: one of the categories is Myth/Magical, but you can easily replace it with one of your own or skip it altogether. Up to 6 players, more in teams, game play is approximately 20-30 minutes. ~ Megan

    Mark Kistler, cartoonist and author of the ever-popular Draw Squad and Drawing in 3-D with Mark Kistler, has taught children to draw using his methods for years. In this book, he takes his fun, yet start-with-the-basics approach and offers it up to adults who think they can't even draw a straight line! He promises that yes, anyone can learn to draw if they set aside twenty minutes a day for a month. If you're game, you can grab any old pencil and sketchbook and embark on an adventure that will take you from drawing spheres to tackling the human face! I like the balance of simple form and more advanced skills he meshes together here. Although you begin by drawing a circle, you immediately turn it into a three-dimensional sphere by adding shading. So you skip that whole "drawing a straight line" thing and head straight into the world of 3-D. Lesson drawing subjects progress in difficulty, beginning with the basics: spheres and cubes. From there you build onto the cubes and spheres that you know, creating koalas, roses, cylinders, houses, rippling flags, pyramids, mugs, trees, rooms and cities in one-point perspective, buildings in two-point perspective, and the human eye and face. Each lesson goes step-by-step, with Mark's illustrations showing the student exactly what to add each time and his written instructions are clear, easy-to-follow and entertaining. Many of the lessons are reminiscent of those in Draw Squad, but the pace is a bit quicker, and the subject matter slightly more sophisticated. Lessons often end with a "Bonus Challenge" where you can take your new skill to the next level, and several examples from Mark's other adult students offer inspiration as well. Drawing supplies are minimal, although Mark makes suggestions and recommendations in several lessons. With its 30-day commitment and incremental lessons, I would recommend this one as an introductory drawing course for your high-schoolers, especially if they have not had much drawing instruction in the past.

    This fun and educational supplement will be a great diversion from boring textbooks and endless amounts of reading! Students will love putting some of their other talents into their history lessons. This book is divided into several sections including Creation, Noah, Tower of Babel, Egypt, China, Joseph and Moses, David, Jonah, and the Trojan Horse. As you can see, it covers many aspects of early history with a good mix of Biblical accounts and other historical events. Each section begins with a drawing of the time period or place, followed by drawing instructions for all different aspects of the picture, and concluding with a page of information about the time period so students can practice their penmanship. For example: Egypt starts with a colored page featuring a pyramid, mummy, and sphinx. The following pages have separate step-by-step drawing instructions (1-3 pages per drawing) for each of those items. The information about Egypt closes the section, written in cursive so students have a model to copy their handwriting after. Sprinkled with interesting facts and Bible verses, this book is sure to bring the ancient times to life. 64 pages. ~ Megan

    Wow. If there was ever a perfect overview of the Second World War written for children, this would come pretty close. Not only does it tell the story about the major battles and people involved, but it also weaves in just about every aspect you could think of: the ideas at war, roles of women and children on both sides, strategies and tactics employed, and much more. It's clear that this book was written with the intention of helping children not only know about the war, but more deeply understand it – all while keeping it on a comprehensible level. Drawings and historical photos grace the pages, along with plenty of interesting asides with quotations, statistics, and mini-bios. 91 pgs. – Chad

    This book is ideal for supplementing any art curriculum. It offers brief biographies of 100 great artists. One page is devoted to each biography, along with a drawing or picture of that artist. It covers Monet, Picasso, Grandma Moses, Audubon, Cassatt, Van Gogh, Matisse, Kandinksy, and tons of others, including many you may not recognize. The interesting, informative biographies recount the artists' lives from their births, through their major life events and works of art, to their deaths. While not packed with details, the biographies offer enough information for students to learn the basics about each artist's life. This book should be sufficient for those wanting to complete an overall study of the artists but not an in-depth study. The biographies are arranged in chronological order, so students can read straight through the book or you can use it as a reference for artists mentioned in your art curriculum. Several trivia questions and an index are included. 112 pgs.

    This is the first in a new series of science studies from Dinah Zike and Susan Simpson. The book is a unique blend of focused science lesson plans for the teacher and information-packed mini-booklets-to-be for the student. The basic idea behind the series is to put complicated information in a simple-to-understand visual format to ease learning and extend retention.

    The mini-booklets are called "Lots of Science Library Books." Pages from the World of Plants book are cut out and cut or folded in various ways to make into the mini-booklets. Approximately one-fourth of the pages are used to make these mini- booklets. This is an unusual approach, but not surprising, given that co-author Dinah Zike is also the author of Big Book of Books and Activities and The Big Book of Projects, both paper-manipulating activity books. Each mini-booklet addresses a specific question, then includes clear drawings and text to answer the question. Occasionally, one of the mini-book pages is titled "Fascinating Facts" and tells an interesting tidbit relating to the question.

    Another quarter of the book is devoted to graphics which are cut out and made into 3D Graphic Organizers. The student makes these into his own visual aid on the topic, such as the parts of a plant, manipulating each part while learning the names and functions of the part.

    The remaining half of the book is devoted to Teacher Pages. Lessons are designed to take one to three days to complete. These include vocabulary words, concept maps, assessments, assignments for all grade levels, and enrichment activities for the 24 lessons. Each lesson is laid out in a similar format. The lesson begins with a question, like "How do plants respond to the world around them?" Several basic statements about the concept are then given. Most of the information for the lesson is included in the "Lots of Science Library Book" for the lesson. Learning takes place from assembling the "Lots of ..." books, putting together the 3D Graphic Organizer, and doing the labs, using the "Investigative Loop". This is a term for the systematic process of posing a question, doing research or making predictions, starting a procedure, observing changes, recording data, drawing conclusions, and communicating conclusions, which may lead to another question and a new loop. Materials for the labs are listed and are generally ones that are commonly available. Instructions for the lab are brief. Although the labs are not complicated, some of them require observations over a period of days; the included "Lab Log" will help you keep track of which experiments you will need to observe on what days. All activities and labs indicate which are appropriate for Beginning Level (K-1), Primary Level (2-3), and Intermediate Level (4-8). If using the program for grades 7 and 8, the extension activities are recommended.

    If you are looking for a program where students are spoon-fed information from a textbook and the teacher needs little preparation time, look elsewhere. This program is the essence of a hands-on program. For those who learn best by doing, this approach is well worth considering.
