We're just about done studying animals for now, and I offered Monkey the option of doing a lapbook for birds of prey, since they are his favorite. He thought that was a good idea, so I'm gathering up the parts and pieces I'll need. Since we spent so much time on them, and this is intended to be a review activity, I'm planning to do a larger book than we've done for our first two. He goes back to look at the frog lapbook we did, and thus it gets reviewed and remembered better than it would otherwise have done - I like that. And he likes to look at his completed work. Lapbooks, as a type of narration, make me happy.
Birds of Prey lapbook parts - they have a great cover sheet, and I Printed several of their lapbook elements.
We found this great owl mosaic idea that I think we might have to try; it's right up his alley!
I printed several of the elements from this owl lapbook site.
I also printed some of the eagle lapbook elements.
Wish us luck! This will probably take some time to put it all together, but I'll see if I can't get pictures posted when we have it done.
