Jamestown — Mayflower
Moving right along…my daughter has been working on this model of Jamestown while my son assembled the mini-lapbook about Jamestown.
Here’s mini-Jamestown, not quite complete yet, but I wasn’t patient enough to wait another day to take a picture :)
You can download this at http://homeschoolinthewoods.com/HTTA/TTS/AmericanRevolution.htm It’s part of a sampler of their materials.
Thanks to my friend Marie for emailing me about this free offer and for mailing me three sheets of card stock to print it out on. Everyone needs a friend like Marie!
This mini lapbook fits on a single sheet of paper. It requires no writing. I bought it for $1 at Currclick. http://www.currclick.com/product_info.php?products_id=29132&it=1
I bought one expensive lapbook once, like $14. I was so disappointed that I had spent the money on it. I just thought, “I could do this myself.” So I did. And I sort of made a pledge with myself to never spend more than $1 on a lapbook.
We started on the Mayflower while we were waiting for the card stock package to arrive so we ended up simultaneously doing Jamestown and the Mayflower. I gave my daughter a notebook page each day and she wrote a pretend diary entry each day. One of books she read was The Diary of Remember Patience Whipple. My son did a few Mayflower worksheets.
