My Triple Lapbook

I've been checking out fun sites about lapbooking! Thought that I would give it a try and teach it to my sons so that we could use it for some of our science studies. In our homeschool co-op group, we were studying about grasshoppers. To learn about the inner parts, we ordered lubber grasshoppers and dissecting kits from science home.

Above is the science lapbook that I created. It is made on a high school level. The flaps are open in the center.

Below, the middle flaps are closed. More photos and information is added. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

On the outer pages of the lapbook, I've added a small mini book with grasshopper facts on the left, and grasshopper recipes to the right. Yum-yum!!! (giggles) One of the lovely parents (Anna) in the co-op group made chocolate covered grasshoppers. I brought mine home. It is in the freezer. I'm still trying to build up the nerve to taste it. Woof!

This is great Jacque!!! You have just inspired me to work on a project like this to help my son (he's 24 and still wants to learn academics but he's in special ed and all they work on now is vocational stuff -- I can kind of be homeschooling him! ) I'm so grateful for your work that you share!
