Apologia Science Learn 'N Folders
When a Learn 'N Folder expands in size it becomes a Learn 'N Folder Notebook (See description for Learn 'N Folders CD-ROMs in the Curriculum section.) Utilizing the mini-book methodology of lapbooks but placing them on hole-punched cardstock sheets in a 3-ring binder (D-ring binders work best) you have all the benefits of a hands-on project and the colorful and clever Learn 'N Folder graphics but the flexibility to take on more involved courses. Now coordinated with the Apologia science courses, the elementary Learn 'N Folders (Astronomy, Botany, and Zoology 1,2,3) provide mini-books for terms, questions, experiments, and activities module by module. The high school courses (Biology, Chemistry, Marine Biology) provide minibooks for the On Your Own questions, definitions, and each of the Study Guide questions. Completed lab report sheets could be added to each modules section if the student isn't completing a labbook. Many students will find these notebooks enjoyable for pre-test review not to mention that mini-book preparation adds to retention. For these notebooks you will need either one large (3") or two small (1.5") binders, hold-punched cardstock sheets, and tabbed dividers. A gallon-size zipbag is helpful for storing the mini-books after printing and before assembly.
