Blowfish Story Lapbook

Lexi had an assignment this past week for Science - she has been studying zoology this month.

She was asked to write a children's story for 1st -4th graders. I think it turned out really cute. We will be using it for years to come I'm sure! She googled images of puffer fish and then we printed them out along with her story - laminated them to cardstock paper and with a hole punch put them on a ring holder.

This is a great way to have your older children get involved with teaching the little ones in the house. Assign research projects that you would like to teach and then have them create lapbooks. Happy creating and learning!

  1. I'm going to grab this idea and run with it! My 7 year old loves anything to do with God's creation. I know he'll jump into writing a book for his 4 year old brother.

    Happy homeschoolin'
