The Biggest Lapbook Ever

Olivia took a break from her regular studies around the time of Thanksgiving to complete Amanda Bennett's Thanksgiving unit study. She had to copy many interesting quotes as well as Bible verses. She also got to practice her dictionary skills many times over as she defined selected words from the study. She looked up information about many interesting people involved in the story behind Thanksgiving. She did map work. And at the end of it all, she had to write a story as though she was a character on the voyage and arriving in the New World during that first year. She did a great job! Then we put it all together in the biggest lap book ever! She has done many lap books since the beginning of her schooling but this one takes the cake for sure. We mostly stick to note booking now-a-days and this may show you why. But this was fun. :)
