A Lap Book is...
-combines mini-books, graphic organizers, and foldables
-hands on replacement of worksheets
-a unit study
-easily adjusted for a variety of ability levels
It kind of makes me thing of a pop-up book, where you can pull, twist, and manipulate things on the pages.
I am loving the material list....a file folder, tape, glue, paper, stapler...all things I have readily accessible. I have been using Google image search for different foldable ideas. Oh my are their tons! Walking by the Way is a blog that has been great for more ideas, and they are sorted by grade. Right now I am figuring out the information about birds that we really want to include and where to arrange all the pieces. Here are a few pics of "rough draft thinking".
|The blank page is for information about beaks and feet.|
|Fun facts and a life cycle wheel. Sorry it is sideways.|
Any of you using lapbooks? Thoughts?
