Using Lapbooks to Learn
Kids of all ages enjoy hands on activities, and by using lapbooks, we can research, categorize information, expand thinking with creative writing, tap into our artistic talents, and use the finished projects for presenting and sharing with others. I love the polished look of a finished project, and the pride children feel with their work is worth the time used to create them. Plus, as students create projects, they are able to exchange information about the topic while they’re working. Those little conversations clarify information for those who need help, and provide time for rereading and reviewing what’s been taught, and the final project works well as a study guide for the unit test.
