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 />

Psalm 92:1

INSIGHT TECHNICAL EDUCATION<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 />

A simplifi ed version of a beautiful craft. These 8”x10”<br />

boards come completely detailed with a wildlife scene. All you<br />

need <strong>to</strong> do is use the special <strong>to</strong>ol, included, <strong>to</strong> gently scratch<br />

away the outer layer of the design <strong>to</strong> reveal the bright and<br />

shimmering metal colored underlayer. Choose from silver foil,<br />

copper foil, and gold foil colors. This is a very simple craft which<br />

requires a steady hand and careful eye, but is as easy as holding<br />

a pencil and controlling the strokes. Because the pictures are<br />

detailed, it will probably require more than one craft session <strong>to</strong><br />

complete each board. Perfect for ages 6 and up.<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 />

BASSWOOD PLAQUES<br />

These basswood plaques with<br />

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

woodburning or decorating projects.<br />

ALBERT’S INSOMNIA<br />

Albert you will become!<br />

WARNING: DON’T GET ADDICTED<br />

OR YOU WILL LOSE SLEEP!<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 />

WATER PRISM<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 />

It includes 37 activities with diagrams suitable for individual or<br />

group studies. We believe you will fi nd inspiration as you explore the<br />

wonders of light while working with this prism.<br />

reaches the <strong>to</strong>p, the warm air continues <strong>to</strong> rise, sending<br />

bubbles through the liquid. Voilá! The liquid<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 />

with Astronomy or a great independent study of the Heavens.<br />

Hardback, 262 pages, 8¾”x11¼”, ages 12 and up.<br />

By popular demand! An accompanying workbook <strong>to</strong> Signs &<br />

Seasons especially for high schoolers. Record observations of the sky<br />

and take tests <strong>to</strong> measure the knowledge learned. Includes maps and<br />

other graphical <strong>to</strong>ols for furthering your student’s understanding of<br />

the sky.<br />

OUR CREATED MOON<br />

For eons the moon has intrigued humanity. From<br />

its creation through the current issues of space exploration,<br />

the moon has been both a light in the night<br />

and a protective shield of earth placed perfectly by<br />

God, regulating our seasons and keeping our atmosp<strong>here</strong><br />

purifi ed. Billions of dollars have been spent<br />

<strong>to</strong> reach its surface and discover its secrets; open<br />

these pages and discover those secrets for yourself.<br />

Provocative questions about the moon’s his<strong>to</strong>ry, purpose, and record<br />

in Scripture. Fascinating and informative. Recommended for middle<br />

school through high school. 80 pages, hardcover, 8½”x11”<br />

BUYING INSTRUMENTS FOR STAR-GAZING<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 />

STAR MAPS FOR BEGINNERS<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 />

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

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

ATTRACTING WILD BIRDS TO NEW FEEDERS<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 />

MAKE YOUR OWN KILLING JAR<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 />

Helens H was shattered by a powerful explosion that<br />

devastated d<br />

its north slope. In the aftermath, amid the<br />

rivers r of mud, blankets of ash, and eerie quiet, a “startling”<br />

t discovery was made: the evidence that many<br />

of o the geological formations we see were caused by<br />

catastrophe c<br />

- not millions of years of erosion. Mount<br />

ARCHIMEDES A<br />

& THE DOOR OF SCIENCE<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 />

PERFUME SCIENCE<br />

Follow your nose on a fragrant<br />

journey through the science, his<strong>to</strong>ry,<br />

and art of making perfumes. Experiment<br />

with countless fragrance combinations<br />

on your way <strong>to</strong> becoming a master<br />

perfumer. Start by learning about how<br />

your nose and brain work <strong>to</strong>gether <strong>to</strong> perceive smells. Next, play some<br />

games with scents <strong>to</strong> train your nose. After a look at the his<strong>to</strong>ry of<br />

fragrances and the current theories behind perfume design, you will<br />

be ready <strong>to</strong> start making your own perfumes. This kit is a complete<br />

perfumer’s labora<strong>to</strong>ry including eight perfume oils, fi nishing solution,<br />

decorative fl acons and important <strong>to</strong>ols of the trade. The perfume oils<br />

are the same as those used in high-quality designer perfumes. The<br />

32-page, full-color book blossoms with information about the biology<br />

of smell, the chemistry of scents, the fi ne fragrance industry, and the<br />

AIR+WATER POWER<br />

Build your own models powered by<br />

air and water pressure <strong>to</strong> learn about the<br />

laws of physics. This unique kit allows<br />

you <strong>to</strong> build two different air-and-waterpowered<br />

systems: water-jet propelled<br />

cars and hydropneumo (which simply<br />

means air pressure and water pressure)<br />

powered engines. The hydro-pneumo system uses a self-contained<br />

air-and-water turbine system as a mo<strong>to</strong>r. Construct 15 models including<br />

a truck, excava<strong>to</strong>r, radar car, tank, antique car, helicopter, mo<strong>to</strong>rbike,<br />

backhoe, rocket car, forklift, roadster, propeller plane, grinder,<br />

and cutting machine. The water-jet propelled cars are a fun outdoor<br />

activity, while the self-contained hydro-pneumo powered models are<br />

fun both indoors and out. Compete with your friends <strong>to</strong> see whose<br />

water-jet propelled car and hydro-pneumo car goes the farthest!<br />

WIND POWER<br />

Build a working wind turbine <strong>to</strong> harness<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 />

providing us with an endless source of energy. Read about different<br />

types of wind turbines and windmills. The full-color, 32-page experiment<br />

manual offers illustrated instructions and scientifi c information.<br />

Science Kits HYDROPOWER<br />

Hydropower has been used for<br />

hundreds of years in watermills and<br />

is now commonly used <strong>to</strong> generate<br />

electricity in applications such as<br />

hydroelectric dams and tidal power<br />

plants. Explore the power of water by<br />

building models and conducting experiments with them. Learn about<br />

how different devices are used <strong>to</strong> extract useful energy from moving<br />

water — from a waterwheel in a small stream <strong>to</strong> a giant turbine in a<br />

tidal power station. Build a waterwheel, a sawmill, and a hammer mill<br />

<strong>to</strong> harness the energy of moving water <strong>to</strong> do different types of physical<br />

work. Investigate the properties of water by performing experiments<br />

involving surface tension, adhesion, and cohesion. Learn about<br />

water pressure by building a water <strong>to</strong>wer, communicating vessels, and<br />

a water fountain. Construct a hydroelectric power station <strong>to</strong> generate<br />

electricity and light an LED. Learn w<strong>here</strong> the energy in ocean waves,<br />

tides, and rivers comes from, and discover how we can generate<br />
