Penguin Lapbook

we finished (well almost) our Penguin Lapbook today. TP just has a few worksheets and a story to finish off, but otherwise here it is :D

Here's the links to what we used:-

  • A lot of the lapbook came directly from HERE
  • This was a fantastic source of information ~ this has all the worksheets, the craft and some other great activities in too :D
  • Some great links can be found here (including the little drawing instructions)
  • There are a few nice bits on penguins HERE (although I didn't use them in the end)
  • There are some nice downloadables HERE ~ including the label diagram
  • How penguins grow
  • Waddle and Hop model
  • And a whole bunch of goodies HERE ! ~ requires sign in.
Of course, to go alongside this we also read 'Mr Poppers Penguins' ~ a REALLY old book of mine (older than my mum!), with brittle old pages that have to be handled with real care. It's been lovely to read it again, but strange how I read so much more critically as an adult ~ has anyone else noticed all the idiosyncrasies in the book, things that just don't quite 'fit' the storyline? All the same, the kids and I have really enjoyed it none-the-less :D

Have lot of fun if you decide to do this ~ we did!! :D

That is very cute-thanks for sharing-problem with lapbooks is that are so many good ones, it is hard to narrow it down to ones we can do/finish! LOL

Oh I love this! We're reading Mr. Popper's Penguins and I've been looking for lapbook ideas to go along with it. These are my favorite. Thank you very much for sharing and providing all the links.
