    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.

    Highlighting the masterpieces of 20 great painters from the 15th to 20th century, you will dig deeper into the works of both householdname artists as well as more unfamiliar artists – the mix includes van Eyck, Botticelli, Millais,
    Morisot, Chardin, Uccello, and Gaugin, among others. Study a masterpiece from each artist, examining how its unique elements were created. Hone in on certain aspects and compare this work to others by the same artist. The text takes a unique approach in describing the art: it is written as though we are standing there as the artist works. The author’s style is explained in a conversational, story-like form. While I found this style appealing and easily digestible, be aware that the author does take a certain level of liberty, such as fictionalizing some of
    the artist’s thoughts and feelings. This book also analyzes the original intended audience, how the painters bucked established artistic trends, and how audiences have responded through the years. This is a beautiful book with 134 illustrations (126 in color), including a full reproduction of each highlighted masterpiece. With each painting, the “Why Don’t You?” inset suggests an activity, such as journaling, a visit to an art museum, or drawing horizon and perspective. Note: a handful of paintings and sculptures with nude subjects are selected. For each artist, you will also find a portrait and web links to view
    additional artwork; a chronology is in the back. Includes a glossary and a list of art museums to visit. 10” x 11 ¾”, 96 pp, hc. ~ Ruth

    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.

    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.

    Newly expanded edition includes an exclusive behind the scenes look at the book's creation, a biography of the life and work of Ingri and Edgar D'Aulaire, sketches from the authors' personal notebooks and photos from their family album.

    Golden fleece, titans, and muses, oh my! This is a very thorough collection of ancient Greek myths accompanied by artful pencil drawings in color and black and white.

    The tales are written for children to understand. Add this book to a unit study of ancient Greece, the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Mediterranean region, or even as a study of ancient religions. Compare their beliefs with modern ones. ~Sara

    Perhaps this text was part of my elementary education. The timing fits – and it would explain why the events lovingly memorialized in this publication are still firmly planted in my memory. First published in 1955 and now republished by Beautiful Feet, utilizing the historical accuracy and storytelling ability of Earl Schenck Miers and the amazing illustrations of James Daugherty (full-color, inked drawings), this book takes the reader through tales of adventure, heroism, and patriotism. From Leif's Viking boat explorations of the northeastern coastline to the atom bomb's close to the second World War, you will read about everything in between – explorers, founders, soldiers, adventurers, settlers, inventors, statesmen, educators, and many more – in the fifty stories that make up this 315 pg, paperback book. A worthy addition to your home library or ideal for any literature-based history course or unit study, the author himself sums up its scope: "…everywhere signs of the greatness of God. It is indeed the one truth in which we all believe. It is indeed our richest heritage." ~ Janice

    Revised and updated by Geography Matters, Geography Through Art combines Sharon Jeffus' artistic vision with author Jamie Aramini's writing talents. While retaining the "heart" of Teaching Geography Through Art, the revision features a snazzier, easier-to-use layout, crisper type and graphics, and many additional "extras". Instructions at the beginning of the book explain the icons and new features found throughout the book, offer instructions on keeping a geography notebook, and include art tips, techniques, teaching tips and a list of basic art materials you'll use most frequently. The book is divided by continent, with a short "world" section at the very beginning. A map, continent summary and list of facts begins each chapter, detailing basic geographical information for the continent. Then, a variety of art information and projects are provided for several major countries in the continent. As Sharon Jeffus believes in hands-on learning, so a wide variety of projects relating to that continent using many different art media are suggested. Subject matter for each continent includes architecture, animals, works of art, and cultural artifacts. With each project, you'll be learning fascinating information about the culture, and enjoy photographs, drawings, and details about artistic techniques. The instructions for each project are broken down step by step, and each project also includes a list of materials needed. Also helpful are the icons throughout the book which denote the difficulty level of projects, indicate if there is a related website available for the project (links can be found on Geography Matters' website), or denote that recipes for that country can be found in Eat Your Way Around the World, if you'd like to extend your studies to the kitchen. Additionally, you may enjoy the "Quicksketches" where students can practice their sketching on a culturally-relevant subject, the profiles of famous artists or works of art, and the "Culture Connection" notes, which draw comparisons between different cultures. If you like an artistic approach to geography, or a cultural approach to art, this book's for you!
