Pumpkin Lapbook – Fun, Interactive Learning!

Lapbooking is a fun way for students to interact with a variety of mediums and become ‘hands-on’ in their learning! I’ve created this PUMPKIN LAPBOOK unit to involve students in their own learning and be CROSS-CURRICULAR, (Language Arts, Science and Social Studies).

What is a Lapbook?

A lapbook is simply a file folder that contains a variety of “mini books,” foldables,
and other material that cover detailed information about the lapbook’s central topic.
What is included in your lapbook is entirely up to you and your learner. A lapbook
might accompany a unit study, elaborate on a book or serve as a guidebook or
portfolio.

Lapbooking can be done at any age and with any subject. At a recent lapbooking
workshop, lapbooks were displayed covering everything from fractions to “all
about me” to the Revolutionary War. Lapbooks can focus on a specific topic, such
as the rainforest, or serve as a reference tool for various skills, like basic grammar
facts. You might wish to make a series of lapbooks about great artists, covering an
artist or a movement per lapbook. You could make a lapbook to go along with your
foreign language program, creating minibooks that serve as reminders for
vocabulary and sentence structure.

It really isn’t as complicated as it sounds, and that is just one of the beauties of
lapbooking. Once you get the hang of it, you will find yourself thinking about
everything around you in terms of lapbooking!

So what are the benefits of lapbooking? A lapbook is, first and foremost, a
fantastic hands-on educational tool. The lapbook itself is highly interactive – from
the creation to the finished product. And each component of the lapbook has
given the learner an opportunity to concentrate on a specific aspect of the greater
topic.

Beyond the educational benefits, a lapbook is a treasure. Students can review their
lapbooks frequently, opening up the foldables, reading, and touching, and reliving
memories made during the creation of each lapbook!
