They can stand, use the backs of their fingers like feet when they walk, and eat up to 40 pounds of plants each day! Spend some time learning all about these gentle giants with our Gorilla Lapbook.

How to Complete Research for the Gorilla Lapbook

By the time your student is finished with the Gorilla Lapbook, she will be an expert on these amazing primates.

This lapbook was designed to give your student ample research opportunities. I recommend teaching your student how to find quality websites such as National Geographic or National Geographic Kids, San Diego Zoo, or going to the library to get books for this project.

Your student will have to conduct simple research in order to create this lapbook. However, prompts on the pages will guide her through the process and teach her the meanings of new words.

For example, as your student is completing the Anatomy Layer Book, she will read through this information on the page:

Anatomy includes the physical characteristics of an animal. What is this animal’s anatomy? How tall is it? How much does it weigh? Record facts about the animal’s anatomy on the pages provided.
