Lap Books are everywhere! If you like hands-on projects, interactive notebooks, or creative ways to engage your students in learning, then you may want to give lap books a try. That’s why today’s post is all about how to make a lap book (or perhaps you say lapbook).
When I first heard of lapbooks and saw some samples that other teachers had made, I was afraid it would be too time-consuming and project-heavy without a focus on real learning. I was wrong. (Don’t tell my husband I said that…he may write it down for future reference. Haha!) 😉
Lap books do not have to be huge, multi-paged contraptions, but can be very simple to make. Here is how to create a basic lap book, using ONE file folder. 😀 I’m a simple gal at heart!
- 1 File Folder
- 1 Sheet Colored Construction Paper (or cardstock)
- glue stick
If you are interested in using this packet, which has maps for all 50 states, foldable templates, photo examples, and instructions, you can find it HERE in my Teachers Pay Teachers store.
Now that you know how to make a lap book, what projects do you have in mind?
