I've been loving my foldables in math so much, I decided to try a lapbook in science this week. Now, this was my first foray into the world of lapbooks, so it was pretty tame - but my students really liked the experience so I think I'll try to do one during each science and social studies unit.
When students had completed one template for each of the 8 planets, they had to cut them out and tuck them into the pockets inside their lapbook. Before they handed their completed projects in today, I had them complete a reflection summary of learning which they glued onto the back of their lapbooks.
All in all, although this was a very simple lapbook, it was great for a first project. I can't wait to raise the bar and try more elaborate projects!!!
