Revolutionary War unit study and lapbook

Revolutionary War Lapbook


After Colonial Times, we started studying the Revolutionary War.  We didn’t get to much into battles, since my kids are so young, but my oldest son read about them a bit.

Here are the books we read:

My 9 yo son did notebooking, while the 8 yo did a lapbook.  We got the lapbooking print-outs from Fortunately for You Revolutionary War Mini-Book and  A Journey Through Learning’s “An Overview of the 18th Century.”

Here are some pictures:

Below is how I attach the lapbooks into the Yearly Portfolio Notebook with duct tape:

  1. Is this A Journey Through Learning’s 19th Century Lapbook or their Revolutionary War Lapbook. I am having a hard time choosing between the two. I will be covering both but would like to go into the Revolutionary War in more detail. Just curious if you remember which product you purchased.
