This is a great piece to have while teaching Immigration. I have created two different options for you but they both use the same flip flap books.
The first thing you can make is a lapbook which is shown in the bottom right of the picture. This is made with file folders folded into a portfolio. It comes with covers in color and black and white.
The second version you can create a suitcase with all the flip flap books inside of it. This you would use a brown piece of 12x18 construction paper folded in half.
Both versions the books can be placed in any order.
Feel free to play around with the arrangements.
Please do not try to make either one all in one day. It is supposed to be used while you are teaching.
