Draw a Tree and a Treehouse

Tree houses are iconic, and they can be quite difficult to draw. Follow along as we get started.

Color

Color the tree, the leaves, and the tree house. It should stick to a color scheme of being brown and green, although if it's set around the autumn seasons, coloring the leaves with reds, oranges and yellows will work fine.

PBS also has a very nice site called Global Connections: The Middle East. There are several ways to use the site’s content. A timeline provides easy access to events across a range of themes over the past 100 years. You can also explore the timeline through the lens of a single theme, such as economics or religion. To help put it all into context, the site offers a series of “connecting questions” which pose higher-level inquiries that cut across themes and time.
