Today Was A Lapbook Day

We were ready for a normal school day today but I decided to let the kids have an easy day.  I said, "Eh.  Let's just work on our Ancient Egypt lapbooks and study our spelling words for tomorrow."  They said, "Yay!" So we got all of our supplies out, turned the radio on and made some great progress on the lapbooks. 

Since we've been learning about the Ancient Civilizations in Story of the World I decided to have them do a lapbook as a summary to what we've learned and what they liked best about it.  We pretty much focused on the different time periods of Ancient Egypt from the Old Kingdom to the New Kingdom. 

Here are our lapbooks so far (I did one too for the fun of it):

This is Jenna's first lapbook.  We're new at this.       I think she did a great job!
This one is Jared's:

 This one's mine:

We had fun putting these together.  I think it's a great way to review what we've learned and we have a keepsake for years later. 


  1. I adore lapbooks, but haven't taken the plunge yet. I guess I could do them with the world geography stuff we are doing. Hmm, maybe I'll try them by continent or something. We're still on Asia. Those look great. I'll have to get my grubby little hands on them in person.

  2. Those are cool! I need to jump on the lapbook bandwagon. We need more project-y stuff anyway. :)
