What's more interactive than a test? More fun than a report? Able to leap all assessment and feedback hurdles in a single fold? A lapbook, of course! "What's a lapbook?" you ask. Visualize a tri-fold table-top presentation display and then downsize it to file-folder size and you'll be getting the idea. From the homeschooling approach that brought us "narration" (Charlotte Mason & Ruth Beechick), now we have lapbooks - and what a fine idea they are!

Lapbooks are made of refolded and connected colored file folders. Then, utilizing the miniature book concept of Dinah Zike, the student prepares and attaches various small books to the file folders. These books are a way of recording information from a particular course or study and presenting it in an interesting and high-recall sort of way. Wouldn't you find it easier to remember the parts of a feather if the information was displayed in a feather-shaped book?

Although anyone can start "from scratch" and make their own lapbook for any subject or study, much of the work has been done for you with these CD-ROMs and kits from Knowledge Box Central. The CD version allows you to print the small books and compile/attach them as you progress through the study. It also allows you to economically provide for multiple students within a family but does not include any file folders. The pre-printed version provides all the printouts needed for one lapbook, but you must provide the file folders, then cut out and put the books together as you add the information. If file folders are hard to get ahold of, tag stock or tag board can be used as a substitute. The pre-assembled version does all the cutting and assembling work for you leaving only the need to fill in the information. My first thought was that I would prefer the pre-assembled version saving me all that messy work. However, further contemplation brought me to the conclusion that there would be more educational value to "building" the lapbook as the student progressed through the course.

Although correlated to the Apologia elementary science courses, much of the information is general enough to be used with any similar study. There are two lapbooks for each Apologia course, each covering half of the course lessons (see our website), or you can purchase complete sets which cover the whole course. ~ Janice

What exactly is included in this kit?
A shopper on Feb 16, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Lapbook package is pre-printed pages that the student cuts out, fills in what they've learned about the topic and then glued onto a folder. The 4 folders are not included. Just pre-printed pages and instructions on how to put it together. This is my second year using these kits. It saves me from having to print the cut-outs myself. I think you can purchase an electronic version and print it yourself. My children are in 3rd and 4th grade. The lapbooks are a nice summary of the main points that learned throughout the year that they can refer back to for years to come.

not formatted well for independent work
This lapbook is just okay. For some reason, the publishers put the lapbook booklet on one page, the assembly instructions on a second page, and the student instructions/questions on a third page (not to mention the teacher guide on a fourth page even though it doesn't actually give you answers, just the page number they can be found on). This is confusing for the student, especially younger ones, and makes it more difficult for them to work independently. In addition, it's obvious on some pages that they didn't read the text very carefully, for example, on geophytes they only included 3 out of the 4 geophytes mentioned in their diagram.
