Free Lapbook

I woke up this morning and headed straight for the computer with coffee in hand. I hadn't read The Well Trained Mind boards for a long time so thought I'd make a visit. I usually just read their curriculum board.

Someone asked what a lapbook was and someone answered by stating there's a free download right now at homeschoolestore.com. So for grins and giggles, I visited homeschoolestore, made an account and downloaded the free lapbook.

The download is for the Project Pack Continent Studies Asia by In the Hands of a Child. It is a multi-grade level. Normal price for this book is $18.

I downloaded it, opened it up and looked it over. Actually, I was quite impressed. We typically shy away from lapbook type projects because Thomas thinks that kind of thing is busy work. That kind of project just isn't suited to his learning style. When I was a kid, it would have been right up my alley.

I think when the time comes, I'll print it out and have Thomas actually do it.

Anyway, just thought I'd share the link as I love finding free goodies.
