Product Description
This easy to use no prep product has 40 different pieces that students can mix or match to create custom-designed animal lapbook reports. There are 20 with writing lines and 20 without lines. This project might be just the thing for review of writing skills and vocabulary pertinent to nonfiction reports.

Rather than include animal faces and graphics for kids to copy, cut, and paste I decided to include a blank “picture piece” for kids to draw their own version of the animal they might choose for their reports. This way you won’t have your students doing “cookie cutter” animals. Kids can color and add details to the other pieces for originality.

NEW: I added core standards for grades 2-4 on pages that could be posted in a classroom, ESL Insights, which is a guide to use this product with ELLs, and a new paper option for report writing.

My students really enjoyed creating these lapbooks. They are really great organizers, too for further writing. Teachers who need portfolio writings can have their students use these lap books as springboards. I included a report template that could be used in addition to the lap book.
