Beginning drawing and writing lessons for children ages five to ten. BOOK 4 focuses on the Polar Regions -- Arctic and Antarctic. The books are simple enough for a young child to do independently, but a teacher or parent may present the lessons. Each drawing lesson includes a colorful picture and step-by-step instructions, while the writing lesson includes four simple handwritten sentences. The teacher or parent may introduce letter formation or have the children copy the sentences for handwriting practice, or use the lessons as a springboard for creative writing or report writing. Developed by an elementary school teacher and co-authored by her daughter. A brief list of the 21 lessons in the book includes Blue Whale, auroras, Arctic people, polar bear, igloo, tundra, wolf, penguin, krill, scientists.

Compare and contrast the two Polar Regions, then look at each in depth. Study the Arctic, "The Land of the Midnight Sun", while drawing walruses, polar bears, and people with sled dogs. Then, look at Earth’s most unusual continent, Antarctica, its unique animals and its scientists. The series won the Teachers' Choice Award and is a regular recipient of Practical Homeschooling Reader Awards.From the Author:
I remember drawing the musk ox (in Book 4) in 1963, when I was a student in my mother's class. As we worked on our pictures, she talked about the defensive position musk oxen take against predators. The herd forms a circle with their horns pointed outward, while their young and weak stand safely in the center of the circle. This unique defensive position protected the herds successfully until Europeans and Asians introduced the gun to North America. Suddenly, the defensive stance made musk oxen vulnerable prey, bringing the herds close to extinction. In the early 1900s, concerned people were able to create laws to ban the use of guns on musk oxen, which has helped increase their numbers. My mother's lesson covered nature, history, and social studies. It was fascinating and intriguing. -- Kim Stitzer
