Are you required by law to teach state history?
Is your state one of many that requires you to teach a unit on your state's history? Are you looking for a method that will teach the essentials in a way that will stick, or do you need a supplement to punch up your dry text? A Kid's Guide to Drawing America is a colorful, fact-filled, library-bound volume that provides a comprehensive introduction to significant sights and symbols of each state. History, geography, economy, and cultural and natural landmarks of your state are all explored.
Interesting state facts
Then, to add "stickiness" to the information, each book supplies easy-to-follow directions and step-by-step illustrations so your child can draw some of the unique sights or symbols they are learning about. Each Kid's Guide to Drawing America features an interesting state fact list, information about a painter whose work celebrates the natural beauty of that state, colorful photos of the state's sights and symbols, and websites for more information.
A Kid's Guide to Drawing America is a terrific supplement for every homeschool library, but don't stop with just your state. Include volumes of states your family has traveled through, states that your job compels you to move to, states that you've always dreamed of visiting, or states loved ones live in. Imagine how delighted grandparents would be to have your children sending them drawings of the sights of their own state.
Flags, flowers, trees, and more
Every Kid's Guide to Drawing America includes directions for drawing the official seal, flag, flower, tree, and more, for a total of ten drawings and twelve "chapters" of instruction. Each book also includes a glossary, index, state background, highlighted artist, websites and more.
