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

My 11 year old enjoys the lap book over the journal. She seems to remember more when we use the lap book format.

Apologia lap book
I love the fact that this lap book has things printed out and basically ready to cut and fill in. That is a huge time saver! I'm having a little confusion on how exactly to assemble it, but this is my first time working with any lap book. I'm using it with my K student while the older sibling uses the regular journaling notebook. I think it would be better with maybe a first grade student or older perhaps. It takes considerable time to help cut, help write and help glue down. That said, my older student, 5th grade wanted one for herself!

Not very user friendly
Although the lapbook is very fun to make and definitely helps to remember what has been taught, both my daughter and I have been very frustrated with how it is put together! I like the colors and the papers it comes on, it will last for a while, I cant stress it enough that putting the pages in a book that is really hard to cut out of is not the best idea! I wish, instead of putting the papers in a book, all the papers would come separately and only the instructions would be in a book. We have ripped several pages and the cutouts due to them being so difficult to remove from the book. The pages and the way that it helps students remember is 5 stars, however the way that it is in book format is 1 star.
