Monday Morning Material: Lapbooking
This week, I bring you a lapbooking Monday Morning Material. The girls have been working on information, facts and other tidbits about Massachusets. Enchanted Learning had a great little page filled with the state bird etc, even the state dog was included.
If you visit the site, you will find lots of print outs on a variety of topics. As we wrap up our mini unit, the girls made 3-D maps, and really seemed to enjoy the experience, so I decided to add another 3-D activity to our plans.
For this activity you will need:
Printer, paper for printer
Crayons or Colored Pencils
Print out enough copies of the planned topic (in our case the state of MA)so that each child can make their own.
As the children cut, you could review with them what they have learned about their topic.
Color the individual pictures.
Fold the very bottom edge of the picture so that it can stand up on your cardstock and glue it in place.
Added appeal- using magazines or other colored print outs- the child could add trees, flowers, grass to their card stock.
You could also hole punch the card stock to make a book out of this activity.
