First off let me explain---THESE ARE NOT FROM MY CLASS!!!!
This is an activity that is done in our 2nd-4th grade class. They are using the Discovering God's Way curriculum that can be purchased through http://religioussupply.org/dgw/ .
This Lap Book activity is NOT part of the curriculum, ...but, it is our TEACHERS taking their curriculum and expanding it with an activity.
These are made from FILE FOLDERS. They are TAPED together and FOLDED back and forth....The Teacher prepares all the items that will attached...BUT, the KIDDOS do all the Coloring, cutting, gluing, etc.
I think they are BEAUTIFUL! My son, who moved out of my class this passed promotion period, made one and he is THRILLED!!!!! He is able to tell me EVERY STORY that they covered during this passed quarter.
Since they say, "a picture is worth a thousand words" ---I will share a LOT of pictures. You are welcomed to ask me questions and I will try to answer them.

As you can tell, this past quarter the KIDDOS in our 2nd-4th grade classes learned about the Judges- the United Kingdom. Their knowledge of this important period of our Bible HISTORY is AMAZING. Thanks to the effort of the TEACHERS that PUT IN SOME EXTRA TIME AND EFFORT.
I LOVE the fact that some of the pages of their Lap Book have Flaps that Have to be LIFTED/MOVED so that you can read MORE information!!! Some of the Pages even have Moving Pieces or 3D items.
I cannot say it enough ---The KIDDOS LOVED making these!!!! And, as a MOM of one of the KIDDOS----I will TREASURE going over this with my son for years to come!!!
