We made this lapbook the week that hunting season opened in 2010. As I went into in the post Family Traditions, deer hunting is almost a holiday for my family. I decided to do a lapbook so that we could incorporate what we were doing that week with what we were learning about.
HomeschoolShare’s Deer Lapbook (most of the mini-books came from here; we added a few extra things too)
HomeschoolShare’s The Yearling Lapbook (we only added a couple of things, but you could combine the books into one)
Wikipedia (deer [main] and several other specific types of deer pages)
White Tailed Deer (Wisconsin State Animal)
The whole book is rather small; it’s made from 2 file folders, one opened and re-folded to open in the middle. The other one, I sheared the edges off and trimmed the bottom and taped inside to each of the flaps.
This was an easy lapbook – we finished it in 2 days (more or less). The kids really enjoyed working on this book. It goes into predators (we looked up mountain lions, wolves, jaguars – which led to discussions about and looking up more on Native American and South American myths and culture – and Conservation Status of the animals and what that means). It was a very informative project!
I hope you enjoy seeing our work! If you’ve done this lapbook, please post a link!
