A lap book is a way for students to display a large amount of information learned in one place. You can make it out of a file folder. I have provided the directions for one that covers George Washington’s life and all of his accomplishments. The George Washington Lap Book is a great way to teach all things George Washington! It has a place for: Washington's jobs, life accomplishments, battles fought, important people in his life, facts you might not know, places we still see Washington today and a timeline of his life.
