I was recently asked what our "Explorer Journals" looked like..So, I decided to dedicate an entire post so that you could see what I call our Explorer Journal.
Our "Explorer Journals" are basically binders filled with plastic page protector sheets. The children fill the page protectors with their Craft/Activity that they make on Wednesday Evening.
I have found that this makes a great way to keep up with all their HARD WORK...and the parents seem to love the books...They are great for reviewing past lessons. The Explorer Journal has also put a stop to the ripped, trampled, thrown in the floor board of the car, crafts. I personally feel if the project takes time to make then it should be saved and treasured. So, the Explorer Journal was my answer to those little problems.
Our BLUE Binder is our Book of Genesis Explorer Journal...Here are pictures of one of my students completed Explorer Journal.
Adam and Eve... 3D stickers.
Sin Lesson... 3D stretchy snake.
Tower of Babel---Building blocks.
Abraham Fill in with Stickers.
Lot and Wife...rock salt added to "wife."
Fur added to Jacob
Angles and 3D Ladder
Rocks Added to Well. Sons of Jacob.
Explorer Journal for Exodus
Joshua & Judges Explorer Journal
Armor of God/Fruit Of The Spirit
Hope this answers the questions about what we call our "EXPLORER JOURNAL." The children enjoy collecting all their hard work together and LOVE looking back at all the lessons they have learned.
