Electricty Lapbook

December 5, 2011 at 9:30 am 3 comments

This lapbook was completed by three of my kids. It is made from pieces of three different lapbooks that cover electricity and magnetism. In the curriculum I’m building the pieces are divided between the older and younger kids. I divided them further picking out some of the younger kid pieces for my first grader and leaving the others for my fourth grader.

Here are the links to the lapbooks we used. Not all of the pieces are pictured.

Magnetism lapbook  It’s made for the Magic School Bus book. We didn’t have the book.

Website for info younger  older

Online games

And a variety of experiments that I don’t have links for. Here’s one.

We drew and built circuits, tested conductors and fooled around. If you have a kid into this, buy a mini hand held fan. Use the motor and fan blades to propel cars and boats.You can get these little motors at Radio Shack.

Here’s a cool video on circuits and human conductors.

It’s all in the curriculum I’m building and I get most of my links from my blog, Links to All Things Free for Homeschoolers.

    I think it’s a great idea that the kids made the lapbook together. I don’t know why that never occurred to me. I’ve only had them each make their own separate ones.

      Well, I’ve never had them do the same lapbook separately 🙂 I’m too cheap to print one out multiple times. I just give pieces that just need a one word answer to a younger kid or a drawing or something or maybe just needs assembling. My oldest does the pieces that need writing. For this one I had two lapbooks on electricity, so my 6th and 4th graders each had a vocab piece and each had a history piece, etc. My first grader just did maybe four pieces that I picked out that he could handle. I don’t worry about trying to get him to learn and understand everything that everyone else is doing. He joins in as he’s interested for topics like this. (I do work with him every school day on the 3Rs.)
