Little House Lapbooks (Knowledge Box)
Creating a lapbook is a fun, hands-on activity for crafty students. Knowledge Box Central kits include a chapter by chapter study guide and clear instructions for creating your lapbook. You can work on it as you go through the book, or make it as a windup activity after reading the whole story. If you get the CDROM version, you will print all of this yourself and can make as many copies as needed. The printed version already has the minibooks and other components printed for you on various colors of paper. You then cut out the parts and create the lapbook (without all the time and money of printing it on colored paper yourself. This is my favorite option for lapbooks.)
The assembled lapbooks become a go-along with your reading, rather than an activity to complete, though you can add to it yourself and make it more personalized.
