Make Way for Ducklings Lapbook

Gerrick finished his lapbook based on Make Way for Ducklings today. I'm really surprised by how much he enjoys lapbooking. I always give him the choice of doing one or not with each book from the FIAR curriculum that we study, and so far he's made one for every book.

If I remember correctly, the templates used in this lapbook were found at Homeschool Share, 1+1+1=1, and Enchanted Learning.

Lapbooking provides copywork experiences that are meaningful. (He knows that all uppercase letters are not conventionally used, but has said that he wants to practice just uppercase until we finish the introduction of all lowercase through our writing program.)


  1. Thank you for this post. I am doing a geography project with my kids and we are starting with MA (our home) and we will spend some time on Make Way for Ducklings. This will be a big help.

  2. nice! we really enjoy working on lapbooks here too..more will come as we get back to hs in the fall.

  3. I've not had any experience with lapbooks, but as a certified teacher, I think they would be useful as study guides in an upper-level elementary classroom!

  4. These activities look like so much fun. Your pictures are so lovely, you have such a great eye.

  5. Good job, G! You have some great inputs...I love the map of the commons to the river. We will be back when we get to that book!

  6. I love the organization that shows in your lapbook. Your son obviously loves the work that he is doing to learn about ducks, Boston and how to read. Thank you so much for sharing his lapbook.

    I hope you don't mind that I have added a link to my Make Way for Ducklings Unit Study page.
