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!
