Greetings Friends!<br />

Nature’s <strong>Workshop</strong>, <strong>Plus</strong>, has been blessed with another successful year of business growth. We know it is because of<br />

you, our cus<strong>to</strong>mers, that we continue <strong>to</strong> be able <strong>to</strong> bring products that enrich the lives of many. We further know it is<br />

the hand of God which enables us <strong>to</strong> carry on the mission of offering quality items <strong>to</strong> enhance your study of nature<br />

and science.<br />

We live in diffi cult times! Announcements of good news one day, followed by bad news the next. Peace talks one<br />

day followed by the threat of more war the next. One report claims economic recovery, while the next declares disaster.<br />

Unfortunate natural disasters all over the globe summon an unending pendulum of emotion. However, t<strong>here</strong> is one piece<br />

of rock-solid news on which this world can’t report. It is the ultimate headline, the Good News...Our hope is not in this life! So<br />

while we anticipate the day that our faith will be made sight, we carry on with the good things <strong>to</strong> which we’ve been called:<br />

hard work, family responsibilities, home schooling, and meeting each others needs. We praise Him for the blessings that He<br />

sends our way. We praise Him for helping us when times are <strong>to</strong>ugh. We praise Him when we realize that He alone is the giver<br />

of peace, and we praise Him just because He is God.<br />

Our family has much for which <strong>to</strong> be thankful. It seems that as the family matures and the children grow and leave<br />

home, we look back and wonder just how it happened that time <strong>to</strong>ok fl ight. We are down <strong>to</strong> only 1 daughter in college, and<br />

three children still at home. Our two married children live close by and bless us daily. Deanna and husband, Bradley, just<br />

moved back from Dallas, Texas w<strong>here</strong> Bradley earned his Masters degree in Christian Education. He is currently working at<br />

Nature’s <strong>Workshop</strong>, <strong>Plus</strong> and is responsible for the new lab kits that will be arriving in the market place this Spring! Watch<br />

our web-site for the exciting new things he is developing. Deanna is a critical care heart nurse, and is busy settling in<strong>to</strong> their<br />

recently acquired home. Donny and wife, Dana Leigh, are very busy building a mowing/landscaping business. He does beautiful<br />

work, and Dana works for Nature’s <strong>Workshop</strong>, <strong>Plus</strong> assisting Bradley in product development. This year, our son, Douglas,<br />

was commissioned in<strong>to</strong> the United States Air Force as a 2nd Lieutenant. We really miss having him around. I no longer have<br />

an adult son raiding the refrigera<strong>to</strong>r and swiping Dreah’s cookies as soon as they come out of the oven. Dana is now a Junior<br />

in college. She is very busy with many life enriching activities. Her perpetual smile and love of life are absolutely contagious.<br />

Dreah and David have assumed the roles of oldest daughter and son in the home. Dreah has become an artist and is now<br />

occasionally commissioned by people outside of the immediate family for her work. Being paid for doing what she loves<br />

is thrilling. David is 13 and is a very active member of our local Civil Air Patrol squadron. He is learning many useful skills<br />

through the very disciplined organization. He enjoys riding his bike the 20 mile round- trip <strong>to</strong> the offi ce and home . Derek<br />

is as lively as any 4 year old can be. He currently assumes the imaginary role of “rescue man” , working as a medic/fi reman<br />

rescuing people from danger all day long! You wouldn’t believe how perfectly a vacuum hose doubles for a fi re hose, or how<br />

a box of plastic <strong>to</strong>ols can be transformed in<strong>to</strong> emergency medical equipment!<br />

Our crew <strong>here</strong> at Nature’s <strong>Workshop</strong>, <strong>Plus</strong> is an amazing bunch of folks. Their hard work and dedication <strong>to</strong> the job<br />

is what makes our business successful. Grandma Ruark and Grandma Evans both continue <strong>to</strong> work several days per week.<br />

Grandpa Evans went home <strong>to</strong> be with the Lord on December 22, 2010. He is sorely missed. We are thankful for the positive<br />

role model he was for us all.<br />

These are the very special people who make NWP an amazing business <strong>to</strong> own: Mrs. Phyllis Evans (Grandma Evans),<br />

Mrs. Shirley Ruark (Grandma Ruark) Bradley Moreau, Timothy Boyd, Dana-Leigh Ruark, Elise Knapp, Ross Porter, Mrs. Kay<br />

Hunter, Kate Boyd, Jared Boyd (the Lord is helping him recover his health as he battles cancer. His is an amazing s<strong>to</strong>ry of the<br />

power of prayer), Luke Boyd, Jordan Boyd, Grace Boyd, Alec Nilsen, Noelle Bryan, Jessica Ray, Nora-Leigh Reed,<br />

Caleigh Ganahl, Mrs. Susan Ingersoll, Vic<strong>to</strong>ria Ingersoll, Claire Hazle<strong>to</strong>n, Josie Knapp, Dana Ruark, Dreah Ruark,<br />

David Ruark, and the little guy who thinks he is the boss, Derek!<br />

Sincerely,<br />

Donald & Diana<br />

Ruark<br />

It is a good thing <strong>to</strong> give thanks un<strong>to</strong> the Lord, and<br />

<strong>to</strong> sing praises un<strong>to</strong> thy name, O Most High.<br />

Complete-A-Sketch is a reproducible (for families) series of technical<br />

art books promoting the concept of teaching by doing. Concepts<br />

are simple and straightforward. Each page shows a small, completed<br />

picture in the upper-left-hand corner of the page. The balance of<br />

the page shows the same image with details and lines missing, but<br />

shows hints, critical intersections and line ends <strong>to</strong> defi ne the image<br />

being drawn. Think of it as a complex dot-<strong>to</strong>-dot. After successfully<br />

completing a sketch, draw it again on a blank sheet of paper.<br />

Complete-A-Sketch aids the student in a number of ways. It teaches<br />

by example, encourages attention <strong>to</strong> detail, provides a basis for all<br />

types of precision drawing, promotes self directed learning, explores<br />

freehand and mechanical sketching, and hones fi ne mo<strong>to</strong>r skills. Each<br />

volume begins with basic shapes and quickly moves <strong>to</strong> more complex<br />

sketches. 11”x8½”.<br />

After evaluating various popular, practical crafts for children,<br />

we feel that woodburning is ideal in many ways. We are<br />

featuring genuine Walnut Hollow wood burning products.<br />

Note about best wood for woodburnings: We have found<br />

that many people using their own woods for woodburnings<br />

soon get discouraged and quit, thinking “This just isn’t working.”<br />

But most of the problem is in the wood and not in their<br />

ability! Most woods have a very hard grain which is hard <strong>to</strong><br />

woodburn across. So, for best results, use basswood!<br />


These basswood plaques with<br />

fi nished edges are great for all those<br />

woodburning or decorating projects.<br />

Small plaques are 0.31” thick.<br />

The more you play the more like<br />

Albert you will become!<br />



This easy <strong>to</strong> learn math card game<br />

is fun and challenging. Beginning with<br />

the number ‘1’ as the fi rst answer, you’ll be using addition, subtraction,<br />

multiplication, or division <strong>to</strong> combine the randomly displayed<br />

four cards in<strong>to</strong> the next number in the sequence, so using the operations,<br />

the only answer for the next player is “2”. Sometimes you’ll fl y<br />

through the sequence with ease. Other times you’ll literally sit and<br />

stew over the cards hoping <strong>to</strong> expose a combination that produces<br />

the needed number. We love this game! It encourages creative and<br />

critical thinking. Example: If the four cards are 1-2-3-4, then you could<br />

say, “2-1=1, 3-1=2 ( or 4-2=2, or 4+1=5-3=2, etc.), 2+1=3, 4x1=4, these<br />

are easy so far...But, how do you make 17? 4+1=5x3=15 +2=17, or,<br />

any other combination you come up with while using each card no<br />

more than once. We allow a few minutes in our school day <strong>to</strong> play this<br />

game, however, we ALWAYS go over the time limit. Great for solitaire<br />

or multi play. Albert’s Insomnia includes 48 cards and complete<br />

instructions. Ages 8 and up.<br />

is i placed in a vacuum chamber and frozen until the<br />

water w crystallizes. The air pressure is lowered, creating<br />

a vacuum, forcing air out of the chamber; next heat<br />

is i applied, vaporizing the ice; fi nally a freezing coil<br />

Fill this large prism with water<br />

and enjoy 37 different activities,<br />

while studying spectrums and light.<br />

Its design is unique. Some prisms<br />

are designed with one 90° angle,<br />

making it ideal for refl ection, but<br />

unsuitable for refraction. Others are<br />

designed with 60° angles for refraction<br />

purposes, but cannot be used<br />

well for refl ection. This prism captures the best of both by using an<br />

80°, 50°, and 50° angle combination. This provides a prism that can be<br />

used for both refl ection and refraction demonstrations. It is designed<br />

for vertical and horizontal use. Large, 7”x5”x3 1 /2”. Available with the<br />

prism, or sold separately, is the 36-page, 5¼”x8½” Prism Pursuits booklet.<br />

Everyone loves a Slinky! This original spring<br />

Richard James invented the Slinky by accident. He<br />

was trying <strong>to</strong> develop a spring that could help keep sensitive shipboard<br />

instruments steady at sea. He knocked some of these experimental<br />

springs off a shelf, and was amused by the way they “walked”<br />

down, rather than just falling. Dimension: (H) 2 1/4” x (W) 2 7/8” Ages 3+<br />

Astronomy is the most ancient of the sciences.<br />

Throughout all his<strong>to</strong>ry, people have <strong>to</strong>ld<br />

time and found direction from the sun, moon and<br />

stars. Lavishly illustrated and extensively quoting<br />

ancient sources, this book teaches the traditional,<br />

Biblical basis for timekeeping and navigation.<br />

Topics include: Phases of the Moon, Passage of<br />

the Seasons, Finding the Traditional Constellations,<br />

Identifying the Visible Planets, How Our Calendar<br />

is Based on the Sun and Moon, and How the Times<br />

of Passover and Easter are derived from their cycles. The book offers<br />

challenging Biblical explanations that distinguish the legitimate science<br />

of astronomy from the ancient superstition of astrology. Also<br />

includes 40 pages of fi eld activities for documenting study hours.<br />

Would make a great follow-up course <strong>to</strong> Apologia’s Exploring Creation<br />

Amateurs often buy the telescope or binocular with the highest<br />

power, but you would be better off spending money for a larger<br />

main lens. This will help the brightness fac<strong>to</strong>r, which is more important<br />

than just magnifi cation. Example: a scope with a 4” diameter<br />

lens but a magnifying power of only 90x would show you better<br />

clarity of detail than a cheap 2½” scope boasting 210x. Don’t underrate<br />

binoculars! Though not as valuable as a telescope for stargazing,<br />

they are handy for large sky objects, and will enlarge planets<br />

and show the color of stars.<br />


This is an easy-<strong>to</strong>-use system of star charts and maps. Each month<br />

of the year has a special star map <strong>to</strong> reference from any direction. For<br />

example, using the May sky map and looking west, the map shows<br />

the exact location of Leo, Cancer, Gemini, Hydra, and more. Using<br />

the same map for May and looking north you’ll<br />

see Ursa Major, Ursa Minor (Big and Little Dipper),<br />

Cassiopeia, etc. As the calendar changes, just turn<br />

the page in the star map guide <strong>to</strong> see the new<br />

positions of the constellations. The guide also gives<br />

background information on the naming of the<br />

constellations and a detailed description of the sun<br />

and planets. T<strong>here</strong> is also a chart of dates for viewing<br />

meteor showers. 64 pages, paperback, 8½”x11”.<br />

All Beautiful The March Of Days<br />

All beautiful the march of days, as seasons come and go;<br />

The Hand that shaped the rose hath wrought the crystal of the snow;<br />

Hath sent the hoary frost of Heav’n, the fl owing waters sealed,<br />

And laid a silent loveliness on hill and wood and fi eld.<br />

O’er white expanses sparkling pure the radiant morns unfold;<br />

The solemn splendors of the night burn brighter than the cold;<br />

Life mounts in every throbbing vein, love deepens round the hearth,<br />

And clearer sounds the angel hymn,”Good will <strong>to</strong> men on earth.”<br />

O Thou from Whose unfathomed law the year in beauty fl ows,<br />

Thyself the vision passing by in crystal and in rose,<br />

Day un<strong>to</strong> day doth utter speech, and night <strong>to</strong> night proclaim,<br />

In ever changing words of light, the wonder of Thy Name.<br />

Birding<br />


If wild birds are not used <strong>to</strong> feeding at your home, and you desire <strong>to</strong> attract them <strong>to</strong> new feeders, try putting a shiny aluminum pie plate nearby in a conspicuous<br />

place, and put chunks of white bread and other foods, such as sunfl ower seed, thistle seed, cracked corn, or birdseed mix on it <strong>to</strong> attract the birds’ attention. Keep your<br />

feeders farther from the house and traffi c areas at fi rst, then move them closer as the birds learn <strong>to</strong> trust you. Birds prefer feeders hung at least a cat’s jump above the<br />

ground, and feel safer if t<strong>here</strong> are trees or shrubs close by w<strong>here</strong> they can take quick refuge from hawks or other enemies.<br />


Relax <strong>to</strong> the sounds of the woods, brooks, and<br />

birds. Enjoy this one hour virtual walk in the woods. No<br />

dialogue, no music, no track breaks, just pure, natural<br />

Northwoods sounds. You’ll hear bird songs, running<br />

streams, wind in the trees, frogs and rain, a distant thunders<strong>to</strong>rm,<br />

crickets, and more.<br />

Due <strong>to</strong> hazardous materials shipping regulations, we do not<br />

offer ethyl acetate as an individual item. Since the main ingredient<br />

of fi ngernail polish remover is ethyl acetate, we recommend you<br />

purchase fi ngernail polish remover and create your own cus<strong>to</strong>m<br />

killing jar. Pour about a one half-inch layer of Plaster of Paris mixed<br />

with enough water so that it is easy <strong>to</strong> pour in<strong>to</strong> a large jar. A pint<br />

size jar works well. Allow it <strong>to</strong> dry overnight. Label the jar “POISON.”<br />

Add about 1 milliliter (about 1/8 tsp) of fi ngernail polish remover<br />

<strong>to</strong> the Plaster of Paris jar. Close the lid and wait 10 minutes until the<br />

liquid has been absorbed by the Plaster of Paris. If the liquid is not<br />

completely absorbed, it could cause discoloration <strong>to</strong> the wings of<br />

brightly colored insects.<br />

Once the jar is “charged” the lid must remain on and be removed<br />

only <strong>to</strong> kill and retrieve specimens. To kill specimens, add only one at<br />

a time <strong>to</strong> the jar and then wait 15-20 minutes <strong>to</strong> ensure that it has<br />

been killed. The insect succumbs <strong>to</strong> the poisonous vapors of the ethyl<br />

acetate. Keep away from children. Do not breathe vapors.<br />

One day, when Archimedes and Hiero were having<br />

their th favorite argument, Archimedes said that it was<br />

quite qu easy <strong>to</strong> apply mathematics <strong>to</strong> real things. “In fact,”<br />

he said fi rmly, “I have fi gured it out carefully, and t<strong>here</strong> is<br />

no weight, anyw<strong>here</strong>, that could not be moved if enough<br />

force fo were applied.” Though it was impossible for Archi-<br />

medes <strong>to</strong> move the physical world, t<strong>here</strong> is no doubt he moved the<br />

world of science. He began the science of mechanics; he discovered<br />

the principle of buoyancy, the laws of the lever and pulleys, and how<br />

<strong>to</strong> measure the circle. He gave mathematics a way of working, and<br />

was one of the fi rst <strong>to</strong> apply scientifi c thinking <strong>to</strong> everyday problems.<br />

This biography of the ancient Greek, Archimedes, is <strong>to</strong>ld in clear,<br />

simple terms, and in a lively, humorous style. An excellent way <strong>to</strong><br />

integrate science and literature. 142 pages, paperback, 5½”x 8½”.<br />

power out of thin air. Wind is one<br />

of the most promising sources of clean,<br />

renewable energy available <strong>to</strong>day. Wind<br />

energy has been used for centuries <strong>to</strong><br />

pump water and crush grain in windmills,<br />

and is now increasingly being used<br />

<strong>to</strong> generate electricity <strong>to</strong> power our<br />

modern world. First, assemble a wind<br />

turbine complete with electric genera<strong>to</strong>r,<br />

adjustable ro<strong>to</strong>rs, and wind speed indica<strong>to</strong>r. Then, conduct more<br />

than 20 experiments with your wind turbine, including experiments<br />

with different numbers of ro<strong>to</strong>r blades, different blade angles and<br />

profi les, different wind speeds, different gear ratios, and so on. Use the<br />

wind turbine <strong>to</strong> generate mechanical power <strong>to</strong> lift a heavy weight or<br />

generate electricity <strong>to</strong> light up an LED and charge a rechargeable battery.<br />

During the experiments, you will learn the physics of force and<br />

motion as it applies <strong>to</strong> wind power technology. Learn how <strong>to</strong> measure<br />

and calculate the different forces acting on the ro<strong>to</strong>r blades by breaking<br />

them down in<strong>to</strong> vec<strong>to</strong>rs. Discover how the sun makes the wind,<br />
