LIGHTHOUSE RESOURCE FOR GRADES K -4 THE SUGGESTED ACTIVITIES RELATE TO VARIOUS DISCIPLINES - ART, SCIENCE, LANGUAGE ARTS, MATH, HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY. GOALS 1. To familiarize children with lighthouses as aids to navigation. 2. To have students gain a basic understanding of lighthouse operation and the evolution of lighthouse technology. 3. To make children aware of the historic role of lighthouses and their current status. 4. To teach children the properties of light and how these are employed to enhance the effectiveness of the light signal. The Story of the Lighthouse Many, many years ago (thousands of years to be more exact), people lived m a very primitive wayboth hunting for and growing their own food (there were no supermarkets in those days, no stores at all!). Eventually they decided to explore the water in a boat to find out what the sea had to offer in the way of food. And, what did they find? They found fish and all kinds of other seafood: clams, mussels, scallops, oysters, lobsters, crabs, etc. During the day they could find their way back to the landing place by looking for a pile of rocks that had been left there.

Extractions: Frederick Stonehouse has obviously spent a great many hours researching the lighthouses, lightships, keeps and wrecks detailed in this book. He also has a great deal of affection for his subject. The book contains an encapsulated history of the lighthouse service at the beginning, which sets the historicval context of the tales that follow. These range from factual accounts from logs to anecdotal stories from survivors' relatives, taking in a lighthouse hymn on the way. The tales are sometimes a bit dry, and can seem like lists of ships wrecked and the places of wrecks, and Stonehouse's style sometimes seems amateurish. But this does not dampen his enthusiasm for the topic nor his knowledge. A great read. I must mention the illustrations, which are a mixture of photographs, drawings, and diagrams. These have obviously been sought out with the utmost care by the author, another sign that he knows his subject. They would benefit from better reproduction as some seem smudged and details are blotchy on some. Another requirement (in the next edition please!) would be for five pages of the book to be used for maps of the great lakes showing the positions of all the lighthouses.

Extractions: Government Information on Lighthouses Responsibility for and eminence of lighthouses has been the responsibility of the federal government since 1789. The federal government at that time took the responsibility of colonial lighthouses from the states and Congress made appropriations for necessary funds. This began the U.S. Lighthouse Service. The administration for this Service switched hands between the Treasury Department and the Commerce Department many times before being consolidated by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1939. He combined the Lighthouse Service with the Coast Guard where it has remained. Coast Guard employees rarely man the lighthouses at this time, but it is still an important part of the service's heritage and history. This is a guide to the information the government holds on lighthouses as well as to the sites they sponsor for lighthouses on the East coast. Sources for Information National Park Service Within the National Park History Program, lighthouse information is abundant in the National Maritime Initiative. It was established to preserve America's maritime heritage. This site has 6 main directories for lighthouse information. Maritime Resources Here you can find lighthouses and light ships within the National Park System listed by state. Each lighthouse or ship is clickable to take you directly to that site.

Early Classic Brick Towers Fire Island Light us coast Guard photo. distinctive gallery design unlike its east coast contemporaries War, two more early classic lighthouses, originally quite http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/lighthouse/types/earlymodernbrick.html
Extractions: American lighthouse construction made little progress from 1820 to 1852, while Stephen Pleasonton, the Fifth Auditor of the Treasury, was the superintendent of U.S. lighthouses. To save money, Pleasonton limited all new lighthouses to a maximum height of 65 feet. The old-style masonry lighthouses of the period share a bluntly conical design, with broad bases and narrow tops designed to hold a small "birdcage" lantern with an Argand lamp, a lighting technology dating from 1781. By European standards, U.S. lighthouses were embarrassingly inadequate and obsolete. Ship captains and ship owners complained continually about the lighthouses being too short, too dim, poorly located, and often out of service altogether. Congress approached the problem by involving military engineers, first as inspectors of lighthouses and then as consultants on their design. In 1847, Congress directed that six proposed lighthouses be designed and built by the military instead of by Pleasonton's contractors. The resulting transition from old-style to classic design can be seen clearly at Sankaty Head in Massachusetts. Sankaty Head Light was built in 1850 under the direction of Benjamin F. Isherwood, who became the chief engineer of the U.S. Navy during the Civil War.

Extractions: Maryland has at least 26 lighthouses, including one replica of a historic lighthouse at Baltimore and a facsimile lighthouse built near Annapolis. In addition, one historic lightship is preserved in Maryland. By my count, 16 of the lighthouses are active. All the lighthouses are on the Chesapeake Bay or its tributaries; Maryland's short Atlantic coast has no light stations. The two sides of the Bay are known in Maryland as the Eastern Shore and the Western Shore. In the early nineteenth century John Donahoo built a dozen stone or brick lighthouses on the upper Chesapeake. Six survive and two are still active. Maryland is also famous for its cottage-style screwpile lighthouses, although only four of these picturesque buildings remain. (In 1900, there were 45 cottage screwpile lighthouses on the Chesapeake.) Phil Payette's website on Virginia lighthouses documents half a dozen Potomac River screwpile light stations where the original foundation remains; these stations are included below. A group called St. Clements Hundred is working to build a reproduction of Donahoo's 1851

Contact Letter from the Editor Welcome to the August Bulletin, edition 4/2003. After now having prepared my fourth Bulletin, the process is getting easier. Whilst the amount of work involved in preparing the Bulletin is significant, the satisfaction of being involved, hearing about all the things going on with Australia's lighthouses, and then publishing the news so that everyone can read about it is very rewarding. The Bulletin will return to a monthly publication schedule, and with this issue, has reverted to the original title "Bulletin", rather than "Bulletin/Prism". Prism will continue to include major stories and historical recollections by former lighthouse keepers and so on, whilst the Bulletin will tend to be more news-oriented. Prism is a printed newsletter forwarded only to members - join Lighthouses of Australia now to receive it.
