Animals in Winter

December 19, 2009 at 6:26 pm Leave a comment

We’re almost finished with the science half of our year July 1 to December 31st. We have obviously been studying animals. January 1st we start early American history. My daughter can’t wait to get at all the books waiting on the shelf. Here’s our last topic for the year–animals preparing for winter. It covers three topics: hibernation,  migration and adaptation. You can click on the picture to see it bigger. Most just open up to write inside: you need to use the internet or books you have at home to find the answers.


The V is a shape poem–write about geese flying south for the winter. Actually, I think it would be best to do the V right-side up (ours is upside down).  You write one word on each line down the one side and up the other.


Here’s inside the body changes  and “to sleep or to wake” pieces.

The sleep and wake piece actually comes with boxes with animal names in it that you can cut and paste into the right column (whether the animal sleeps all winter or wakes up to eat), but my son decided he would rather write the names.


Here’s inside the migration routes piece.

My son did this one his own way to. I intended for the routes to be color coded. You mark the key with which color you want for each route. He marked the routes by different markings: solid line, dotted line, x’s…


This lapbook (everything you see here) is available as one download from the Simply Lapbooks Yahoo Group.  I hope some can use it.


I put one other file up today at Simply Lapbooks. I put under Living Books a book report form. No pictures, just a plain sheet to fill out with the book info, plot, setting, main character, how the main character changes throughout the book, what I learned, what I liked, what I didn’t like. This can be used with probably ANY book if you need something quick and easy so they can respond to a book.
