Show and Tell ~ The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

 

Last school year, my boys and I decided to read through the entire CS Lewis series, The Chronicles of Narnia.   All of us enjoyed the books and I’m glad I waited until they were a bit older to go through the series.  We were better able to discuss the parallelism between his stories and the Bible.

Homeschool Share has a wonderful lapbook that goes along with The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.   Debbie and her children, from Our Cup of Tea, completed the lapbook and had a great time doing it!

I love the imagination involved in drawing what Lucy may have seen.  I think someone who has not seen the movie may have different ideas.

And maybe the best part of the entire book study would be making and sampling Turkish Delight!

I love how Debbie brought in pieces from Homeschool Share’s beaver animal study to fill in about the beaver family in the story.

You can see more of what Debbie has done at her blog, Our Cup of Tea.  Debbie and her husband and 3 children live in the UK.  Her oldest, age 10, completed this lapbook – but I’m sure there was some help from his younger sisters.

Show and Tell – Seabird (Holling C Holling)

How many of you went to the beach this summer for vacation?  Seabird by Holling C Holling is a great go along book. Homeschool Share has a wonderful unit study to go along with this time-treaured book.  Harrington Harmonies completed this unit study and did this awesome art project to go along.  There are step by step instructions on their blog on how to complete this 3D seascape:

I love the finished project.  Great work and something to be proud of!
