In the Days of the Knights and Castles Lapbook

I know some of you think that there is a lot of cutting involved in lapbooks, and there is, but the one thing you get from a lapbook like In the Days of the Knights and Castles is a well-rounded study of a this subject. Kids seem to retain more information when you add craft activities to it. The hands on approach of these activities seem to make their little brains just suck up this information and hold it in there. Now for those of you who have young kids that do not have the flexibility with their hands and cutting I have a secret for you…I take a blank page and fold each one in half, glue the two sides and put the cut components in the pouch. That way, I have all the activities cut, ready and in order. Makes for a more patient learning session. Then the kids just write their information and glue them in place as we do our lesson.


Journey Through learning has a completed a 59 page mini-booklet templates for you on In the Days of the Knights and Castles. Each page has directions for cutting and assembling the templates. Plus they give you a layout page so that you know exactly how to paste each element onto your lapbook so that they will fit perfectly. Or you can arrange them how you would like it. In the Days of the Knights and Castles Lapbook is designed to go with their If You Lived During the Days of the Knights by Ann McGovern, but it can be just as easily put together with your own research and study. What that means is a fun trip to the library or turning on the computer and doing some surfing for your research. This can be a great way for some children to complete their lapbook. Especially an older child who likes that.


The graphics In the Days of the Knights and Castles Lapbook are brightly colored and every mini book is perfectly ready for your printer, scissors and glue.

I give this a 4 out of 5.
