After reading each selection the girls recorded the information where prompted and cut out the appropriate portion to include in their lapbooks.
They glued and compiled their lapbooks eagerly! They also asked daily when it would be time to work through the study again, Grace especially. I think she loved it because to her it felt very grown up to learn this way. She is 7 and eagerly looking for opportunities to do more grown up things. To have the opportunity to learn alongside her older sisters really meant a lot to her. We don't do this all the time, so it was certainly a novelty!
Although this is not our typical way to study, I was highly impressed with The Greatest Inventors. In all honesty I have shied away from lapbook studies because to me they appeared to be overwhelming to prepare and somewhat complicated to compile. I learned this to be the furthest thing from the truth! It took less than 30 minutes of preparation to print the research material and lapbook pieces as well as put together the 3 lapbooks. That is really very minimal effort. In addition my girls clearly enjoyed this method and that is the most important thing.
No matter what you are studying you will be able to find a labpook from A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks to intrigue your kids. There is an incredible selection and the Review Crew had the opportunity to review some really great titles including:
And those are just a few of the available studies!
