Lapbooking & Notebooking



What is lapbooking or notebooking? Is it more work?


Actually, homeschooling comes alive as students make interactive projects -- exploring the fascinating subjects they are learning!

With lapbooking and notebooking, students are engaged in discovery, while creating beautiful mementos for assessment and display.

It is certainly an effective and FUN way to learn and remember material! All subjects can easily be integrated into a hands-on portfolio type of product. Can be very effective in unit studies, delight-directed and classical methods of home education.

Here are some links to get you started! Have fun! :)


You can use a manilla folder (cheap alternative to posterboard!) and refold it with the ends meeting in the middle, as shown here. Or make two of these and glue together to make a huge lapbook with lots of possibilities!
