PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Lapbooks are a great way to make learning interactive, engaging, and meaningful. They aren't just for homeschoolers, my students love putting these together to show off their learning. Tons of knowledge can fit into these compact books.

With this lapbook students will create mini-books and foldables as part of a unit study on the American Revolutionary War and piece everything together in a lapbook. It is cross-curricular as students will be immersed in U.S. history by reading non-fiction text and expressing themselves through writing and art. Included in this guide are teacher directions, 7 lapbook activities with directions and printables, a student reflection, and grading rubric.

Are you using Interactive Notebooking in your classroom? Instead of creating lapbooks, students can use these foldables as learning tools in their history notebooks!

For more information, I blogged about lapbooks at

I love it and more importantly the students loved it. They learned so much because they were able to go into the text and complete these organizers. Their lap books were awesome.

Fantastic varied challenge for my 4th grade and 7th grade homeschool classroom. Each were able to sift through the mounds of library books, focus in on their chosen topics and also collaborate to create timelines and priorities. Thank you for this fun and interactive way to study this period of history!

I would have loved to have a 13 colonies map included since I am a LA teacher using the American Revolution as a basis for a unit and don't have a lot of these materials. The lapbook is fantastic for my kids to keep their ideas and sources cited all in one place, all while looking really great, too!

I am a former full time teacher turned home-school mom and I did this lapbook with my 3rd grader. I loved many aspects of it but thought the time-line and petal book were redundant. We skipped the petal book, did a little art project of the first American Flag, and added that to the lapbook with some information about Betsy Ross and why the flag was designed the way it was. We had a great time using biographies of the important people she chose to fill out that section. My biggest wish was that some informational text be included about life on the battlefield. Overall this was a great project, we just tweaked it a bit to suit our needs.

Great activities. My kids loved this. Put the projects out on Grandparents Day. Got lots of great comments. The kids were fully engaged and learned a lot while having fun in the process. I'm only making one small change for next time since there is a little repetition between timeline and petal book.
