Our final Maine book, and our second lighthouse one was a fun true story of one girl keeping the lighthouse lit through a terrible storm, and encouraging her sick mother and her two sisters while waiting for their Dad to return with more supplies.

After reading the story, I gave them a bit of specific direction on how to draw a lighthouse. We carefully drew out our pictures, and since I had rushed out of the house that day we didn’t have the watercolors to make it look dark and stormy. But, they did enjoy drawing and coloring the lighthouses.
The instructions came to draw it came from Art Projects for Kids Lighthouse lesson
I loved how varied their results were:
I found Superman’s especially interesting because he had a definite plan in mind for his lighthouse, and after a while I realized he was trying to make one like in the book for the pattern.
