"Life in the Arctic Circle" - Artistic Nature-Science Unit Study #11


The theme for this unit study is
Life in the Arctic Circle

This issue of the popular Artistic Nature Magazine (in PDF format) contains 100 pages full of colorful pictures and information. Discover a place you probably know very little about: The Arctic Circle.

In this issue, we explain the fascinating world of the Arctic Circle, across the globe from our last issue on Antarctica. This time, in addition to a different set of whales and seals, we cover moose, caribou (reindeer), muskoxen, Dall sheep, Arctic foxes, hares, wolves, ground squirrels, ermines, lemmings, lynxes, wolverines, and more.

Artistic Nature Magazine has been changing in some important ways recently. We have added a lot more photographs and many more links to videos, so your kids can, under your supervision, watch these animals in motion. We are very careful in our choice of videos to avoid anything that might be offensive to Christian families, such as swearing, harsh music, mating, blood and gore, or anything that would upset children or their parents, and no cartoons. We choose only videos that are pure, innocent, uplifting and inspiring, so that you and your family can look forward to enjoying the over 100 videos linked in this issue.

In this issue we include videos with

  • beautiful views of the aurora borealis (northern lights)
  • dog sledding
  • real reindeer pulling tourists in sleighs
  • footage about the children of reindeer herders
  • instructions and demonstrations of igloo-making
  • mother and baby animals
  • wolves howling
  • animal rescues
  • baby animals playing in the wild
  • even a real moose trying to play soccer with its antlers!

This issue also includes animal tracks:

  • tracks labeled with the animal that makes each one
  • individual tracks on different animal pages
  • a space for your kids to draw the tracks
  • tracks for them to label, and
  • several coloring pages with hidden tracks to find

Our coloring pages in this issue include

  • an aurora borealis picture for your kids to color in any color they choose
  • a polar bear family swimming
  • a muskox family huddling together in a blizzard
  • a dogsledding scene
  • a family for loons with the chicks on the mother's back
  • a pod of white beluga whales

and many others - 23 coloring pages in all, enough to give you 2 months of art more than twice a week.

This issue also includes:

  • a map of Arctic bird migrations
  • a page of camouflaged animals to find
  • a devotional, "Warm Up to God"
  • a health article on hypothermia (how to detect and treat it)
  • links to music by 2 composers from countries that lie partway within the Arctic Circle (in Scandinavia), including
    • "Hall of the Mountain King" by Edvard Grieg of Norway, and
    • Finlandia, a piece that includes the tune of "Be Still My Soul," by Jean Sibelius of Finland
    (Your kids get to watch the orchestras playing these pieces.)
  • 3 educational word searches and 10 other word puzzles

Plus we treat your kids to a story about an Arctic researcher untagging polar bears, written by homeschool graduate Jonathan Dunlap.

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.
