Lapbooking: Ancient Civilizations

For the first time in our homeschooling journey, we're giving lapbooking a try. I have to say, I'm kicking myself for not trying this sooner. What a fun learning experience, not to mention a handy tool to use for future reference.

We're in the middle of working on the Ancient Civilizations lapbook for history. It's not complete yet, but I think it's coming along rather nicely.

Before we open the folds, we have mini flaps that open to reveal the definitions of the main words of study.

Next we have a map of the different ancient civilizations we will be studying. As we learn about each, Fairy Girl will color in that section of the map and we'll extend the lapbook to include the added sections.

Lift the map pictured above and we have a brief mention of basic needs. Fairy Girl is in the process of working on the mini book you see attached. It will include things like food, shelter, and clothing.

Next we get into a brief description of the people. The pull out shown below is the social order. This section also flips down to reveal a write up that Fairy Girl will complete summarizing what she learned about this section.

The right flap with contain a mini pull out timeline. More pictures will be posted once this section of the lapbook is completed.
