Before we left for America the end of last year we didn’t quite finish our lapbooks for Project Passport: The Middle Ages. After we returned we put them together. I fully intended to print out cute letters to glue to the front of these (like here – how cute is that?) but had printer issues so never got it done. We didn’t use the lapbook covers that came with the study. Instead we drew rows of bricks and cut the tops to look castle-like. The knights came from our Knights & Armour Colouring Book.
LadyBug was happy to show her lapbook that day. I did a lot of the cutting out for her, otherwise hers never would have gotten done!
JitterBug wasn’t thrilled about being photographed that day, but consented anyway.
But no smile. Absolutely not. No way.
Well, not a real smile anyway. :)
This kid didn’t want to be photographed at all, but I managed to get his entire lapbook. Can you tell I colour-code my kids? They each have their favourite colours and it’s easier to keep track of what belongs to whom this way. Except when they like to mess with me by using the opposite for some things- like water bottles. I can never remember whose is whose now.
The various lapbook pieces are created as you go along. It’s just a matter of assembling the lapbook at the end of the study. You do need a good place to store them until then, we opted for a plastic pocket with a velcro closure that could go in our notebooks.
Sadly, we had to leave our lapbooks and notebooks behind while we are travelling. We just don’t have the room to store them in the caravan. The kids love looking through their old schoolwork and I know they’ll love seeing these again in the future. :)
