There’s more than corn in Indiana! I know it’s hard to believe, but Indiana’s history is full of amazing people, places, and events.

This set of Indiana History Lapbook printables is perfect for a homeschool cooperative (which is the original reason it was written). You can pick just a few pieces for a lapbook, or you can use a notebook for a more comprehensive Indiana history project.

Thanks to Jodi Small for preparing this Indiana History Lapbook.
