Christopher's Lapbook

July 26, 2007 at 10:26 am (Uncategorized)

This is my friend Christopher.  He made this awesome lapbook and said I could share it here with you…

Here is the cover:
It is called My America and he covered the folders with fabric!  Isn’t that beautiful!  He also made the flag out of fabric scraps glued to a piece of cardboard and then attached to the folder.  I just love it!

This is the inside left folder:
Here he has a time line, a booklet about America Symbols (like the Flag, Liberty Bell, etc.) a booklet on American Holidays (When they are and what they are.) a booklet on people (George Washington, Abe Lincoln, Betsey Ross, etc…) and a little match game of USA Landmarks and their descriptions.

Here is a closeup of the Holidays Booklet:
I think this is so clever!  He took a worksheet on the Holidays and cut them and folded them to fit in his booklet!  Great idea! 

Here is a closeup of his Landmarks Matching Game:
Excellent! (Oh, it is laminate with clear contact paper too!)

Inside Right Folder:
Here he has a flap on money.  This I thought was so clever.  He cut up a money placemat (.99 cents at Wal-Mart.) and made each of the coins and bills a little flap.  Inside he told about the denomination for the money and the Presidents on that denomination.  In the middle is a flag and under it is the meaning of each part of the flag. Below the flag is a ziploc baggie booklet of Patriotic Songs.  On the right is a cool game on the names of the States.  He took a blank USA map and numbered each State.  Then made the spinner at the top and has a check list to see if he gets the answers right!  So cool and clever!

Here is a close up of the game:

Close-up Under Flag:
This is under the flag and tells what the colors mean:
Red- Courage

Wow!  What a great job!  Thank you so much Christopher (& Mom) for letting me share your AWESOME lapbook!

    Hi Jamin! I love your site and all the COOL stuff you guys do! My three kids are spaced almost the same as your three. Any advice on how to manage and DO fun things/school things/project with three different abilities, learning styles and developmental stages?


    P.S. Tell your friend Christopher we loved his lapbook!

    Wow! That is a great lapbook! We've tried a few, but I always burn out before we're through… Whenever I see a great one (like this one!), I want to try it again.
