Ahh, the joy of another lapbook being finished is wonderful! Makayla worked hard this month learning about World War I. She recorded the things she learned in the World War I Project Pack from Hands of a Child. We read lots of books about World War I, check out our booklist here.
As you can see, we spiral bound her lapbook again, it’s just the way we like to do these big lapbooks. The left page holds vocabulary words and important people from the war.
Here is the same page with some of the mini books opened. On the right were three booklets about which countries were neutral, and who was part of the Allies or the Central Powers. The open book on this side is the last page of her timeline. Each year had it’s own page and Makayla write down a few important events per year.
The next two pages in Makayla’s lapbook contain a few things that actually did NOT come from the Hands of a Child Project Pack. The pigeon facts were a notebook page from ABC Teach that Makayla cut apart, the pigeon flap in the upper left about Cher Ami I created, and on the right I also made the flap about the Lusitania.
Here is the same page with some flaps opened. On the right the other mini books are about the United States’ involvement in WWI, casualties, and the two main types of ships used in the war.
This page has a tab book about many of the important battles on the left. It was interesting to see how long some of the battles were, versus how quickly others went. The yellow block has numbered flaps, under which Makayla wrote about ways that airplanes were used over the course of the war.
Here is the same page with some open flaps. The pink flap on the right is where Makayla wrote baout some of the guns used at this time, while the green flap is all about trenches. She was fascinated with the trench system, even asking if we could dig a trench in the backyard.
We’re nearly to the end of her lapbook now. On the left page you see a blue book about chlorine gas, a pink book about one German plan that failed, and a yellow flap about how important mobilization was.
Open picture of the same page. On the right is a pink accordion with some of the other names World War I was known as. The one Makayla found most interesting was “The Family War”. It was called that because nearly all the leaders of the fighting countries were related by blood or marriage. The white sheet is page one of her WWI quiz, which came from ABC Teach.
The last page of the lapbook! On the left you see page two of her quiz, and a blue mini book with information on all the treaties that came about as part of WWI.
There you see the last flaps opened. On the right page is the last of Makayla’s quiz. The yellow book is about tanks, which were first used in this war.
Phew! Thank you for taking a minute to look through Makayla’s lapbook. If World War I is on your list of topics to cover in the future you can use my links in the first paragraph to purchase the Project Pack from Hands of a Child.
Now we’re going to take a break from studying wars. We still plan to study World War II sometime before Thanksgiving, so keep an eye out for our booklist next month sometime!
