Tab Books are an easy way to organize information for a topic. They are a great choice for your student’s lapbook because they can hold a lot of information without taking up a lot of space.

Your student can write the topic and draw a graphic on the cover and then divide the information about that topic by tabs.

For instance, if your student is completing a lapbook on alligators, he could make a tab book on alligator anatomy. Each page would be about a different aspect of alligator anatomy: skin, teeth, claws, tail, etc.
