Lapbook Fun

I have just updated this post and added it to a page.  I hope this helps you enjoy lapbooks in your homeschool!

We’ve been doing lapbooks at our house for a number of years now.  It’s really a fun way to organize the unit study and have a culminating project that doesn’t take up too much space.  I keep them handy on a book-shelf and often see the kids take one out to look through it (reviewing what they’ve learned!)

I’ve made up my own and purchased complete kits.  But I really love finding free ones online.  More and more are being posted all the time.
Below you’ll find some links that will help you find one on almost any subject you can think of.  By the way, if you don’t know what a lapbook is, look at Jimmie’s Squidoo site or Jamin’s blog for a full tutorial!

Industrial Revolution Through Great Depression lapbook

We have really enjoyed using the history materials from Homeschool in the Woods.  Here is the most recent lapbook my second son put together, of the time period Industrial Revolution through the Great Depression.  Here are the books we read for this study.
