Free Homeschooling Lapbooks

[Photo by jimmiehomeschoolmom.]

Take a file folder, add a bit of folded paper or cardstock, toss with a dash of creativity, and you have a recipe for one fantastic hands-on project. A lapbook is a summary of whatever topic your student has studied --- a book review, a science project, an era of history --- presented in bits and pieces for easy review.

If you have been wanted to try a lapbook project, but didn't know where to start, check this out:

Free Homeschooling Lapbooks from Homeschool Helper Online

Website host Amy Smith writes: "I started this site in 2006 as a way for homeschoolers to share the unit studies, lapbooks and other resources they have created with other homeschoolers. It seemed like the hardest part of creating activities was just finding an idea or getting started. With this site I get to help others by posting some of the work my children are doing. In return, I get to use all the wonderful ideas that are submitted with my children. Oh, and best of all, everything is FREE."
The site offers a wide selection of downloadable topics: Holidays, History/Social Studies, Language Arts, Math, Science, and more.
