My students are loving the use of foldables in their journals! They use them as resources for review, creating questions, answering questions, and as a tool to use as a resource to prove they are right in their own thinking/answering! Thanks for sharing!!

The font you used on the front cover (also in the foldables) has letters that appear as boxes. No "r" "l" "h" "m" "s" and more. We can't read those pages.

That is strange. I downloaded it and it worked fine on my pc. I just re-loaded it onto the system. Re-download and let me know if it works.

could you please post what the rock and mineral lap book would look like finished. I have many extra foldables. PLEASE HELP1
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 28, 2013From Chopsticks to Mason Jars answered:
I used the paste-able pages instead of a lapbook with my students. Did you download my freebie "About lap-booking"? It has some pictures and how to set up lap-books. Basically when you do a lapbook there is no set order and you just glue the mini-books into the lapbook however you want. Please email me at jessilcaldwell at live.com if you need extra help.
n/a
On  November 16, 2012,  Buyer asked:
Why haven't you included the information that goes in each section of these foldables?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  November 16, 2012From Chopsticks to Mason Jars answered:
You provide the information that goes inside the foldables. I always allow my students to go through notes we have taken in class or their science book to find information. It gives them a chance to voice things in their own words/opinion.
