Civil War Lapbook
This Civil War Lapbook was made by Sprite, daughter of Jimmie, a homeschooling mom located in China. Sprite does a great job of making interesting lapbooks, and I love featuring them on this blog. You can see larger photos of this entire lapbook by visiting her Flickr photo gallery: Civil War Lapbook Photos. Many thanks to Jimmie and Sprite for letting me share their lapbooking skills on this blog. Be sure and visit Jimmie’s blog, Jimmie’s Collage, and read about more of their homeschooling activities.
Sprite uses lots of mini-books inside of her lapbook to make it more interesting and a fun learning experience. She uses several styles and shapes of minibooks. Always plan out your lapbook ahead of time. Decide which minibooks to use for each topic and where they will be placed within your lapbook. You can also use minibooks for small stand alone projects.
Sprite has used several notebooking pages inside of this lapbook. She suggest using sheet protectors and paper brads to affix the notebooking pages to the lapbook.
