  1. We are new to lap booking but, totally excited!!!! Thank you for the detailed step by steps. Can’t wait to get started.

  2. This was a really helpful post. Seeing the planning, the preparation, and the layout step-by-step made the lap book concept much clearer to me! I have avoided lap-books and frankly, thought my daughter a little old for them(we started homeschooling in 4th grade – she is a rising sixth grader now). Seeing your older girls enjoy the process is making me re-think my position, as well as seeing a lap book project on a more advanced science topic. I think a lot of the lap book projects I saw early on were for younger children. Thanks!

    1. Glad you found the post helpful! Yes, it seems that most lapbooks are geared for younger children. Homeschool Share has a few lapbooks for older children available here: http://www.homeschoolshare.com/level6.php and here: http://www.homeschoolshare.com/level5.php
      As my girls get older, I find that they want to take an active role in designing their own lapbooks (my 14yo designed more than 1/2 the components in the Movie lapbook). Look for next months post if you are unsure how! 🙂

  3. Hey 🙂
    I just have a question. We homeschool and we have been doing the Ancient Greece lapbook. that is heaps of fun and all but there are some things where it says that the instructions are on the link given. but the link says something like ‘click here’. it doesnt actually give a proper link. and when i go on the pdf preview to click on it there it wont let me. nor the downloaded version. some of the lapbook paper thingies (sorry mindblank) dont even have instructions. i was just wondering where i can find the links and instructions for the ones given.
    Thanks Missy

  4. and also, sorry, i asked the same question a little recently but i couldnt find the page that i asked the question on, so could you reply to my email aswell. if possible. no worries if you can as long as i get my answer!!!!

  5. I just discovered lapbooks and I am working on getting something put together! Thank you for all your lapbook info. It’s helped a lot! Question… What kind of paper do you use for the components? I’ve been hesitant about getting cardstock because printers can be fussy with the thick paper.. but I also want it to be durable. Thanks for you quick response!

    1. Natalie,
      We use regular printer paper for most components. The exceptions are components that get handled more frequently, such as wheels, cards, etc. which we print on cardstock. Hope this helps!
