Spiders are incredible, fascinating creatures. Your kids will love learning about them with our Spider Lapbook.

How to Complete Research for the Spider Lapbook

By the time your student is finished with this interactive project, she will be an expert on spiders.

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, or going to the library to get books for this project.

Even though your student will have to conduct simple research in order to create this lapbook, it won’t be too difficult for an elementary student. 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 Spider Diet Plate Shaped Book, she will read through this information on the page:

A diet includes what the animal eats. Some animals are carnivores; they eat meat. Other animals are herbivores; they eat plants. The animals that eat both meat and plants are called omnivores.

What do spiders eat? Draw and label a spider diet on the inside of the book.
