Free Space Lapbooks:

JFeliciano lapbook pieces from homeschool launch — these pieces are each at their own link. You can use the Links blog to see what’s available. Scroll down to Space (first is earth, then oceans, then space).

(Note: since I wrote this I’ve added a new lapbook to the list based on the Magic School Bus book, Space Explorers.)

I took lapbook pieces from these various places and used them with my five-year-old. I searched around and printed out what I thought was appropriate and doable for him on his own. (The specific links are below.) My son does already know how to read.

He’s the only one who did a lapbook. You’ll notice I let him do everything on his own. He cuts, writes and draws himself. That’s all part of school.

I’ll do another post with what my older kids have been doing and all their links. My son loved doing his lapbook. He’s still coloring space shuttle pictures and today he’s going to fold a star-finder (that will probably require my help).

Links for the lapbook (for my five-year-old son):


Draw the Phases of the Moon (this is a pocket and you draw pictures of the moon at each of the phases)


Comets and Meteorites (has not made it onto the lapbook)

Others picked from here (size of earth and sun, how far, day and night and focusing heat with a magnifying glass)

Color and Learn Space Shuttle Book

Constellation Strips (This is on the lapbook, but you can’t see it. He cut out one of these pages whole, and I folded it up and he glued it on the lapbook in the top left corner.)

*Below are things not on the lapbook but that he did. You could use one of these for a cover. My son wanted to draw his own cover.

Planets Printable and Orbit Paths

Constellations Dot to Dots

Solar System Coloring Page

More space shuttle coloring

Sun coloring page

Sun Book Nasa B/W book on the sun that you can print out–can be used some for coloring

Star Finder

This isn’t a print out, but my five-year-old really loved looking at these “space balls.” They show the relative size of the sun and the planets. It is really cool. You will like it too! Gather the family to take a look even if you aren’t studying space. (I recommend turning off your volume though.)

    I’ve finally linked to this on the Space Lapbook lens. The Yee Shall Know PDF is amazing! What a find.
