BOOKS AND MATERIALS

Draw Write Now! #6 : Animals and Habitats on Land, Ponds and Rivers, and Oceans

  • Author: Marie Hablitzel and Kim Stitzer
  • ISBN: 0963930761        
  • Supplier: Rainbow Resource

Barker Creek Publ., Inc., Poulsbo, WA; 1999; 64 pgs.; 21 projects; teacher notes; 3 lesson extensions; 3 art lessons re horizon lines and backgrounds.

 

Add Draw Write Now #6 for nature study and drawing, penmanship, and report writing!  This book is marketed as a penmanship program, but we use it as a follow-up to Ed Emberleys Drawing Book of Animals to continue developing hand-eye coordination and following instructions, to round out nature study, and provide a wonderful format for reports and book reports for the younger student.  There are currently eight different volumes in this series, most covering three different topics from American history or natural history; any one is valuable.  At the end of each of the topics in the books are challenging art lessons, and reading lists and projects to talk about or do related to the topic.  In Volume 6, the level recommended here, the art lessons are about horizon line and point of view.
 
Fix tracing paper over the completed model in the book with temporary adhesive/Post-It Note glue; have the child trace in each step from the facing instruction page, step by step, and add color if desired.  Have him trace over the report information at the bottom of the report.  Now peel off the tracing paper and fix it to white cardstock.  Voila—a foolproof science report, art project, fine motor skills activity, and following written/graphic instructions practice.
 
Adapt this format—a specific visual writing prompt, and trace-over or copy work—for science, history and fine arts reports, and book reports, also.  Too, always refer to these projects as “reports”, to attach the child to scholarly activity.  Put grammar and composition aside when working on a Draw Write Now! report and count this work as grammar, composition, science and art for that day.
 
You may report this book as part of Science, Composition or Art Practice, according to which subject you used it in most.  Report how many projects were completed and send a copy of the best of the latest.
