Homeschooling: It's not what we do, it's how we live.

Titanic – 100th Anniversary Lapbook

We’ll be starting our Titanic Lapbook in April. We haven’t started it, but I know some of you will be looking for resources, so I wanted to go ahead and post what we will be working on in a couple of months:

ThisAdventureLife’s Titanic – 100th Anniversary Lapbook (23 minibooks) template

If you’ve used my templates before, then you know that they’re not in ‘lesson plan’ format so much as they are in the order that I created the mini-books. I usually include links to the information the mini-book is about so that you can add your own information (or do your own research using my books). However you choose to use them, they’re free for personal use (but please link back here rather than uploading my lapbook templates onto your website).

Enjoy!

    I am new to homeschooling and my 8 year old loves the titanic. Today we visited the National Geographic Museum in DC and really enjoyed the exhibit. I wanted to follow up with a lapbook and came upon yours. Can you please explain your minibook template?

    • Hi Kerry – your field trip sounds exciting! I’m not sure what you’re looking for by way of explanation. Can you be more specific in what you’re asking?

      Essentially, each mini-book asks a question or a couple of questions, which the child would then research and answer, in writing. Other minibooks give the name of a person, where the child can look up an write a little biography, or some interesting facts about that person. Other books are more ‘open-ended’ – just a picture or blank template that you can add whatever information you like to them to add to your lapbook.

      The link(s) closest to each mini-book usually contain the information that the mini-books asks for, or you can look up the information from other sources or resource types (biography books, videos, etc).

      Some mini-books can be cut out and folded, others must be cut out and stapled together. Some mini-books have optional ‘prompt’ pages that you can use, or discard them in favor of your own information inside.

      I hope this helps, but if not, feel free to ask specific questions! If you blog, I’d love to see yours completed!

      Warmly,
