Last year we did a number of projects on the Polar Regions (Arctic and Antarctic) but we never got round to completing this Polar Animals lapbook. I decided to save it to review this year and we made it a project for all of the children to work on together.
The projects we did last year includes:
To make this Polar Animals Lapbook I searched and compiled a huge selection of templates from Homeschool Share which you can download in one file HERE. We didn’t use all of the templates but we used a large number, making this one of the largest projects we have completed.
When this lapbook opens out it unfolds and unfolds, and unfolds …
There are so many elements to this lapbook that it would take forever to photo every single book. When the lapbook is opened the first two pages focus on the Arctic and then the Antarctic looking at the regions in general and the people who live there or have travelled there.
Samira completed this timeline of Antarctic Explorers.
She also completed this flap about the summer and winter at the Poles.
Yusef completed this booklet on glaciers, icebergs and ice floes.

She also completed this activity on the Arctic Fox.

Yusef did some research on Emperor Penguins.
Then he completed this flap about whale blubber.

She also completed these little fact flaps about Polar animals.
