Your kids will love this Dog Lapbook! This hands-on research project will teach your student all about dog anatomy, dogs as pets, dog communication, types of dogs, and more.

Research for the Dog Lapbook

By the time your student is finished with this lapbook, she will be an expert on dogs!

Unlike other animal lapbooks in the shop, this lapbook includes research for your student to read. The included research covers topics such as dog vocabulary words, seven different dog groups (Terriers, Hounds, Toy Dogs, Sporting Dogs, Herding Dogs, Working Dogs, and Non Sporting Dogs), dog communication, dog anatomy, pet dog equipment, and more.

If you prefer, you can use this lapbook to give your student ample research opportunities. Your student will have to research a dog breed in order to compete the dog breed report form. You can use this opportunity to teach your student how to find quality websites such as National Geographic Kids and how to search the library to find dog books to read.

Dog Lapbook Printables

The printable file includes 15 templates and mini-book for your student to create a Dog Lapbook. If you decide to use all of the mini-books, you will need two file folders. If you aren’t sure how to join two file folders for your lapbook, you can find out more here.
