March brings to mind Saint Patrick’s Day and what better way to get in the spirit than with a lapbook from Homeschool Share? We use these lapbooks every month when we prepare our geography country study for our Passport Club co-op class.
Here’s the cover of the Ireland lapbook.
Although we read Look What Came From Ireland and the True Book: Ireland, we actually ended up using the iPad (one of its many uses in our homeschool) to do our research.
I use the proclick to bind our lapbooks together as books instead of using the file folders. I find it is easier to store them that way and that the kids are more likely to go back and look through their work.
I left the components that were simpler for my 4 year old to complete.
This is the inside of the Saint Patrick flap.
We love Homeschool Share’s country lapbooks. It’s nice that I don’t have to reinvent the wheel!
