Little House In The Big Woods - A Lapbook.

Today Hannah started her 'Little House In The Big Woods' lapbook. It is the first of the Little House On The Prairie books by Laura Ingalls Wilder.
Hannah loves the Laura books and is fascinated by Laura's life in the late 1800's as a little pioneer girl, so this lapbook really appealed to her.
Activity 1 was to make a vocabulary folder to be added to as the book progresses.

Activity 2 - Laura's biography!
Activity 3 - draw your favorite scene from the book! Hannah used the front cover as inspiration as she loves the part where Ma mistakes a bear for their cow one night!!

We found out where Wisconsin is, and found the lake that Laura and her family crossed while it was frozen on their journey west.

I think lapbooks are such a good idea. I especially like the book based ones, and Hannah really enjoys them while also getting to practise her reading and writing skills, comprehension, discussion, art and all manner of other things AND enjoying a good book as well!!
