Summer is a great time to make an Ocean theme lapbook. If you’re planning a trip to the beach, you can include some “learning time” into your vacation without your child even realizing it. Explain about oceans, shells, sea life, etc. Take plenty of pictures while you’re there. After you’re home again, together with your child, make a lapbook or scrapbook about the ocean. Highlight the things you’ve discussed. You can include as much or as little as you’d like. Add your pictures. It can be a fun summer project!

Below is an Ocean Lapbook made by Sprite, daughter of Jimmie, a homeschooling mom in China.
Sprite made several different types of mini-books for the inside of her lapbook. Each mini-book represents a different topic, including oceans of the world, types of fish, the food chain, and exploring the ocean.
