If you teach about insects, look no further!
This 43 page download is a complete kit with black line masters and photo directions for making a very comprehensive insect lapbook with your students.
Included in this kit is a full page nonfiction passage with graphics for nine different types of insects (or insect groups). The passages are easy to read and correspond with the foldable parts inside the lapbook. The students can read each informational passage and then record hand-written facts on the provided lapbook inserts. I have researched and written these informational passages myself.
The lapbook cover gives a brief introduction to insects with cut and paste vocabulary words (arthropod, jointed, segmented, antennae, wings, exoskeleton, entomologist).
The back of the lapbook includes an insect diagram with cut and paste body part labels (head, thorax, abdomen, 6 legs, antennae). It also includes a diagram that shows the stages of complete and incomplete metamorphosis (egg, larva, pupa, adult / egg, nymph, adult).
This lapbook kit contains the following interactive parts:
1. Insect lapbook cover
2. What is an Insect? cut and paste introduction activity
3. Insect body part diagram with cut and paste words
4. Stages of complete and incomplete metamorphosis diagram
5. ***Nine informational insect passages***

10. True bug fact foldable insert

Photos of every part of the lapbook are provided, with the written answers that you can use as an answer key.
Lapbooks are an excellent way to keep students motivated and engaged in their learning. It is a nice way to keep everything in one place instead of sending home lots of loose papers. The complete lapbook makes a terrific study guide for the unit test.
