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).
Includes vocabulary, vocabulary cards, life cycle, parts of a pumpkin, pumpkin book templates to answer questions such as “Native American uses for pumpkin”, “Nutritional value of pumpkins” and more.
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
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
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!

History The numeric system represented by Roman numerals originated in ancient Rome and remained the usual way of writing numbers throughout Europe well into the late Middle Ages. Numbers in this system are represented by combinations of letters from the Latin alphabet. The numbers 1 to 10 are usually expressed in Roman numerals as follows:
I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X
The use of Roman numerals continued long after the decline of the Roman Empire. From the 14th century on, Roman numerals began to be replaced in most contexts by the more convenient Arabic numerals (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6…); however, this process was gradual, and the use of Roman numerals persists in some minor applications to this day.
To make Roman numerals, we use seven letters from the alphabet. The letters, which are always capitalized, are I, V, X, L, C, D, and M.
Where are Roman numerals used today? We can find Roman Numbers and Roman Numerals surrounding us in everyday life. The fact is, they are not really old or outdated, we just favor the easier Arabic numerals or the decimal system (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, etc).
We still use Roman Numerals or Roman Numbers for names of monarch, as symbols in math and chemistry, in movie titles and credits, as part of papers like in thesis and book writing, in clock faces, in sundials, in buildings and monuments.

I recently had a member of the CHSH FB group ask about a Circus Lapbooking unit. She had looked everywhere (FB, Pinterest, TPT) and all she could find were a few worksheets and a whole lot of craft suggestions but not lapbook units. So I decided it was time to create one!
All About the Circus – Lapbooking Unit
Students will learn a brief history about the circus starting in Europe
and then coming to the United States. They’ll also learn the difference
between the early circus and the circus of today!
Includes: Suggested vocabulary and spelling words, a suggested reading
list, a brief history of the circus and multiple pages of templates to
create a hands-on, fun learning project!
