B's Knights Lapbook

For the past few days we’ve been working on our knights lapbook.  This works along side our KONOS lessons and sort of puts together a lot of what we’ve been learning. It’s great to have everything in one place!
B can take out his project and look at it over and over, remembering all of the fun things we did with this unit study and KONOS.
Lapbooks are very versatile.  You can usually find printables and information on the web for all subject, especially kids this ages.
Who doesn’t enjoy cutting, and gluing.  I did help him 
cut a lot of the shapes but he did all of the

coloring/drawing, and most of the gluing for this project.  We just did a little every day this week. 
I went to a Tobin’s Lab workshop at the last FPEA
 homeschool convention and she suggested that you should never try to complete a lapbook at once.  While you are working on a unit study, gather all of your activities, printouts and other stuff you want to add to your lapbook. She also suggested keeping all of the things you collect in a ziplock bag. When you are done with your unit, you then get everything out and start to build your lapbook.  This is what we did and B was really towards the end of the unit because he knew the information and was able to easily do the activities like label a castle and a knight.  

He is very much into medieval stuff now.  It’s great  that we homeschool and the kids can really dig into a subject and stick with it.  They learn so much   more when they study things they like.  🙂
This lapbook ended up being a few pages long.  I wanted to make room to add some more.  We always seem to have more to add to the lapbooks we’ve done.  I used 4 file folders total.
