Have you done any lapbooks? Come in here and share your ideas and pics!

I'm considering doing some lapbooking with my 4th grader.  He's a hands on learner so it might be a good fit.  I'm interested in what kind of ideas everyone has.

Well, that's crooked.  Sorry.  This is our version of lapbooking-meets-notebooking.  I'd rather put her stuff into a binder to keep from having to store all those lapbooks.  This is from her "world book" We started with the continents, seen here, and then move onto individual countries, one a month (and one state a month).The large brown spot was supposed to be sand, but we didn't have any, so we glued dirt to represent the Sahara Desert.  It doesn't show well in the pic, but there's green glitter marking the rain forests and gold glitter marking the Savannah.  The animal flaps have more stickers of the animals underneath and the hump of the camel has camel fun facts written underneath as well. We've found all the longest, deepest, oldest, tallest, etc of world records that we could for each continent.  It was fun.  I even learned a lot.  With all the gluing and glitter, my dd has retained a lot of the information. 


I love this idea! Beautiful work. What age was your student when you did this?

we started it last year, during 1st grade.  We're still adding to it.

There are several types of books that can be made.  You mostly have to use your imagingation.  You may have to google or look up on the internet for a picture of some of these.

Shutter fold, hamburger fold, envelope fold, large Q & A books, Trifold, layered book.  You can do some of these folds with  a folder as well.

wow! I had no idea there were so many different types. Learning how to lapbook is a project in itself.

Same here.   The closest I'm coming this year is doing Apologia and using their Anatomy journal.   It has several interactive components that makes it very much like a lapbook.

 We have done several lapbooks in the last couple of years.  Ds1 took a lapbook class about turtles, tortoises, and terrapins on currclick last year.  He did an Alabama state lapbook, ten commandments, butterflies, and frogs.  Those were made in the 3rd and 4th grades.  We have not done any lapbooks so far this year.

My preschool did a bat themed lapbook with shapes and colors.
