A Lapbook All About Ontario!


I am so excited about this new product!  I have always wanted to make a lapbook, but never really knew how to do it.  I also had the book “A is for Algonquin – An Ontario Alphabet” that I was trying to create an awesome resource for.  

After browsing the Internet for inspiration, I came up with a lapbook project for one of my favourite children’s books!  The scrapbooker in me LOVED this project!



I started off by cutting green bristol board into three pieces measuring 11"x17" each.  Then I folded in 4" on each side so that it would look like this: 



I then glued two sets of flaps together to make three panels and four flaps, something that looks like this:  


My lapbook was then ready to be decorated. I created a small activity for each letter of the alphabet, to accompany the pages of the book "A is for Algonquin".  I think this is an ideal project for grades 3 and up and would be great as a one-day project (perhaps with an occasional teacher when you're absent) or spread over several days. the activities include reading comprehension questions, making lists, stating an opinion etc.

Do you use lapbooks in your classroom?  What have you used them for?
