We simplified this week’s lapbook pretty extensively, because we are still working on our rental house that’s 4 hours away. On top of it, all of my daughter’s activities started up right at once, and I’m teaching three classes at our local homeschool co-op, this semester (never again!!). Anyway, without further ado, I give you…. The volcano lapbook.
Volcanoes: Fire from Below, by Robert Coupe (we mostly just looked at the pictures, as it was a little too advanced for my 5-year-old, and we had so many others to read through)
Volcanoes! by the Editors of TIME For Kids and Jeremy Caplan (this was one my – advanced reader – daughter was able to read to me. The pictures captured the attention of both my 5-year-old and 3-year-old.)
Volcano Explorers, by Pam Rosenberg (another great book with large print and some cool pictures.)
The Magic School Bus: Inside the Earth, by Joanna Cole (this was about more than just volcanoes, but it explained exactly where the magma is inside the earth, and how volcanoes erupt. Plus, anything Magic School Bus is a hit, in our house)
Volcano! by Ellen Prager (geared toward younger children, this book has pretty illustrations but didn’t go much into detail)
That was all, this week. I know we missed out on viewing what are sure to be some great videos, online, but we just didn’t have the time. I’m happy we’re still keeping up with our lapbooks, though, simple as they may be.
