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

Great resource!
This is great for the younger group of kids I teach! They have something to do with their hands while I read and teach them the information!

We are using the lapbooks for the first time this year and we are hooked! My kids have fallen in love with science all over again! The lapbooks CD's contain a lot more than you think and it is very thorough They have instructions on what materials you may need how to assemble the lapbook what lesson each item is in and where to find it in the corresponding book! They have one copy in black and white and one color copy in case you want more color or your child doesn't want to do all the coloring OR you can mix and match! The lapbooks give the kids more hands on than just answering questions or writing answers down as well They get to cut paste color write and look at it every time they do science So since it is more sensory they will be able to retain more They will even take it down to look at it when we aren't even working on science! There are several "minibooks" (a minibook is just what it sounds like a small book where you can turn the pages or it will come out like an accordion and other such ideas!) that are used throughout the lapbook which allows it to pack even more information in The kids get to write in the appropriate information and then place it in the lapbook Knowledge Box has made lapbooks for every level of science up to Physical Science and my daughter (who is doing general science) wants to keep doing them! Knowledge Box also has several other lapbooks for history and other subjects which we are going to use as well These are a must for your Apologia science!
