When I was contacted by Egghead Academics to review their Liberty Lapbook-The Founding of a Country, I was excited. However, when I got the Liberty Lapbook download I was totally amazed!! I figured it was going to be a simple lapbook with a few key US History facts. Boy was I wrong!
The lapbook download is jam-packed…to the tune of 132 pages! History is not my strong point (I am a math girl), but this lapbook download lays EVERYTHING out for you. Not only does it include lots of great printables and activities, but there are also links to other sites to use with the study! That means that I don’t have to spend extra time trying to find resources that I may need or sort through a bunch of random links!
I am so thrilled because this will be a GREAT supplement to my daughter’s 2nd grade history curriculum which focuses on US history! Can you just imagine how giddy I am!!! 🙂
So, what exactly is included in the Liberty Lapbook download?
- A complete study guide for your child
- Links for additional information and resources
- Lapbooking activities for grades 3-8
- Activity sheets designed with fun in mind
- Creative writing activities
- Copywork activities to help develop strong penmanship skills
- Fill in the blanks, research activities, crossword puzzles, and more!
Some of the topics covered in the Lapbook include:
