Overview

Catherine and Deirdre give you a simple introduction to lapbooking and a variety of lapbooks they have created through the years about eight different countries (Canada, Chile, Dominican Republic, Haiti, "Emerald Isle," Galapagos Islands of Ecuador, Panama, and Papua New Guinea).

Clearly these countries are a mere sampling of the wonderful countries across the world that you can study with your students. Our hope is that you and your students will take these ideas and put together your own lapbooks after you've done several of these.

You will quickly see that these lapbooks have many things in common: maps, flags, timelines, and pictures. They also have one other thing in common - little to no instructions. Catherine and Deirdre believe in giving students and teachers some basic tools to get them started and then the flexibility to go in whichever directions they desire. Add file folders, students, and imagination and you should be ready to go!

Meet the Author

Dee and I fell into lapbooking a few years ago, almost by accident. We had both stayed away from lapbooks because they seemed too complicated and time consuming. But we quickly figured out they didn't have to be. In fact, lapbooking is so great because there are no hard, set rules! It is really whatever works for you and your students! We've used lapbooking in many classes we've done - giving the kids all the same materials to work with, and had them each come up with a different end product!

Catherine and Deirdre were content to just enjoy lapbooking with their own children and students until they discovered that others were avoiding it for the same reasons they had been. Since that time they have put together dozens of lapbooks to use with their own students and for other educators looking for hands-on educational tools.
