We at Homeschool Share are frequently asked about lapbooks.
How do you make them?
Where do you find them?
How do you design them?
How do you use them once they are made?
So in order to answer these questions without getting overwhelmed by a LOT of information, we will have a Five Part Series dedicated to lapbooks.
Earlier we shared:
to help y’all assemble your own lapbooking kits. In order to use all these goodies, homeschoolers have asked us, “Where do we get lapbooks?” So here you go!
Lapbooks are found around the web, ready for you to print, cut and assemble. The prices vary from Free to around $30. As you become an experienced lapbooker, you will come to prefer the styles of some over others. I went to my favorite group of lapbookers, the Homeschool Share Forum, to find out the best places to access lapbooks.
Homeschoolers sharing for free:

Knowledge Box Central, “Home of the $5 Lapbook,” is a favorite of those without color printers. Simple shapes and designs let your child’s imagination go to work.
