We’ve really enjoyed the Scholastic book If You Lived With the Iroquois. As we worked through this book over several weeks, I made some simple minibooks for Sprite to fill out after our reading. This activity served as her narration for the lessons.
(You can see the entire set of Iroquois lapbook pics at Flickr.
Here she is with her finished project and our almost grown kitten. (You can see this kitten when we first adopted him at Sprite’s blog.)
And the best news is thatyou can find the free templates at Homeschool Share. I offered them to Ami, and she fancied them up and is hosting them at her site.
Would you like to create your own lapbook? It’s not difficult. It’s much like planning a unit study. I’ve written some directions & a planning page for How to Plan a Lapbook to help you get started.
If you need some encouragement, visit the Homeschool Share Forum where there is special section devoted just to lapbooks. A lot of the ladies over there write their own lapbooks and share them at HSS.
