I found this great starter lapbook for the Titanic by Dynamic2Moms. We are in the process of reading Magic Tree House Research Guide Titanic. I was going to make my own lapbook template for the Titanic unit but I just have not had the time we have been VERY BUSY! I do have a list of all the lapbooks we are going to do I will post a link for it below. On the dynamic2moms website they also have some great links at the bottom with activities.

I will post pictures of the lapbook as soon as we are finished.

Lapbooks- Science

My daughter and as do I LOVE SCIENCE! The only science lapbooks we have completed this year have been from Yee Shall Know. She has fabulous science lapbooks based on the books in the Magic School Bus Chapter Book Series. They are colorful and well planned. If only one day my lapbooks will be like hers! The first lapbook we did of hers was based on a The Magic School Bus: Search for the Missing bones. The lapbook is all about bones, joints, cartilage, etc. My daughter really liked it.

We are currently working on another of her lapbooks for the Magic School Bus: Polar Bear Patrol. It’s not just about polar bears. It’s about the Arctic Polar Region. The book mostly talks about animals but does touch on other related topics as well. So far its coming along great. We will post pictures once we are finished and it is all assembled!

Here is the link for the Yee Shall Know website:
