The theme for this unit study is
Ocean Fish

Think fish are boring?  Think again!
We have a feast for your children’s eyes and minds in this issue of
Artistic Nature Magazine.

Your kids will discover

  • giant fish, including the 8-foot long Goliath grouper, the 10-foot ocean sunfish, and the 40-foot whale shark
  • flying fish and colorful fish, including butterflyfish, angelfish, clownfish and more
  • special fish, including pipefish, seahorses, and leafy sea dragons, as well as sharks and rays.

Your kids will love our photos of the shark tunnel surround-aquarium at Sea World, which our 17- and 20-year-old homeschool grads, Jonathan and Jennaya, and Joy Marie, the editor, visited to take photographs for this issue, which includes 37 color photos.  Your kids can read about our family on assignment and then discover our tips for taking photos in our Photography Workshop column.

As always this back-issue of Artistic Nature Magazine is packed with art experiences for your children.  In addition to our photography workshop, we have included 5 paintings in this issue by famous artists for your kids to learn from and try, using our detailed instructions.  We have included 30 beautiful coloring pages, each with instructions and either a photo or a colored example or both to help them develop new art skills as they color.  Please note that in addition to all of the other enjoyable, educational features you receive, each back-issue of Artistic Nature Magazine gives you a quarter year or more of art instruction.

This issue also includes

  • enjoyable poetry
  • a fish quilt patch to color
  • easy drawing lessons that any child can do, with many very different types of fish
  • a fish kaleidoscope picture to color creatively
  • instructions for setting up and caring for a real aquarium
  • famous paintings by Monet, including one with a line drawing of the painting for grades 6 and up to color or paint
  • swimming safety rules
  • a page comparing different sizes of sharks, and
  • instructions for drawing silhouettes of hammerhead sharks.

Remember that all of our pages can be printed out or photocopied for all children living in your home and can be shared with guests to use in your home if they are there while you are teaching art.  (This does not apply to whole homeschool support groups, however.) 

We also include Bible verses, a devotional page, and as always, we include word searches and a variety of word puzzles, dot-to-dots, and other activity pages as well, plus a treasure-hunt search throughout the magazine for tiny seahorses adds to the fun.

Did you know this unit study also comes in a version for kids in 2nd-4th grades, so you can include your younger children in the unit study?

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
