Rainforest Lapbook

Z-Man's Amazon Rainforest Lapbook:

He is so proud of his work. This is his third lapbook but I think we really need to do more because he is so pleased with the result and every time he shows someone, it's great review for him.

This is what it looks like opened up. The flap that folds up has a labelled map of South America on the other side.

Here are the little booklets opened up - the mammals book on the left has four individual booklets on the jaguar, tamarin, tapir and giant anteater. Each opens for a place to write information about the animal. The layers of the rainforest booklet opens at each layer to write a description. The tree opens at the top to describe the canopy, then the trunk opens in three places for lianas (vines), epiphytes and buttress roots. The booklet on the right shows where the world's rainforests are. The top flap has three frogs with places to write their names and a bromeliad, which actually opens on both sides. He also did a round anaconda book which we forgot to put in! Hmm... maybe it will fit above the layers book.

ALL of these lovely and colorful print-outs are from Homeschool Share. What a tremendous resource!

We've had such a wonderful time in the rainforest that we hate to leave. But we're not going too far - just north to Mexico - see you there!


  1. Oh, it's wonderful! Full of colors and learning. Well done.

  2. Thank you so much! We're very excited to do more.
