Books that Bombed
Mummy (Eyewitness Books) (DK Eyewitness Books) This one gets very gruesome towards the end. Sprite didn’t like the pictures. So I put this back on the shelf.
Tales of Ancient Egypt Sprite and I both disliked this book. We read a chapter or two before I decided we had more meaningful books to read. Yuck.
Mara, Daughter of the Nile This one is sure to be great. The author is one of our favorites. But since I want to wrap up this time period, I’m putting this novel on the shelf of reserve books.
PUTTING IT TOGETHER
Sprite put all of the notebooking pages and minibooks created during this study into a bound book made from manila envelopes. She also used the Ancient Egypt pages from our art calendar to spruce up her project pages.
She spread everything out and organized it for her finished project which is a lapbooking-notebooking hybrid.
This is the first inside spread.
The best part about the bound book made from manila envelopes is that you can put notebooking pages into the pockets.
The second inside spread.
Third inside spread. We used three manila envelopes for the base.
Fourth inside spread.
This is Sprite’s monthly writing assignment. She wrote an essay on significant animals in ancient Egyptian culture.
You can see the envelope flap to the right (photo above). Inside that pocket are more notebooking pages (shown below).
Next stop is ancient Greece.
