We Did It!

Our very first lapbook! I have been thinking about this, researching it and trying to get up the nerve for years now! Yesterday we dove in! I used a couple of templates, some info. pages from Enchanted Learning & a few misc. things I found on the web. It was a 'fly by the seat of my pants' kind of deal. Elvis really enjoyed the adventure & it helped cement what we have been learning in co-op about ants.

Labeling the ant.
He did this all on his own reading the definitions & finding the correct spot.
I was impressed!

Gluing the sequence cards onto an accordion style fold.

His work so far.

The inside. We kept it simple this time only using one folder.

The back of his lapbook.
I am proud of how hard he worked on this.
I'm excited to try another lapbook soon.
