If you haven’t guessed already, yes this is another of Samira’s lapbooks … she’s mad about animals, she has a new favourite animal every week, masha’Allah. She’s been on at me for ages to prepare a Penguin Lapbook for her and I’m pleased to have found some resources and templates which she is currently working on … so watch this space, insha’Allah.
Anyway, back to this lapbook … I found the templates for this lapbook on the Homeschool Share website. Samira was so happy when I told her I’d found a lapbook all about rabbits, she completed it within two days.
I also created a few extra templates which you can download by clicking on the links below:
- Front Cover Colouring Page
- How to Draw a Rabbit
- Rabbit Jokes
- Rabbit Maze
- Rabbits are Halal to Eat
- Rabbits are Mammals
She worked hard and had great fun completing this unit. This is what the lapbook looks like as it folds out.
Being Muslims, I like to add in Islamic elements wherever possible and here Samira read about the hadith that permits eating the meat of rabbits.
This is a nice booklet about rabbit hierachy.
This is a list of a few of the books/dvds we viewed whilst learning about rabbits.
We learned that rabbits live pretty much everywhere across the world.
Here Samira listed the characteristics that are specific to mammals. And below the list is a rabbit-shaped card with a rabbit joke on it. These are dotted around her lapbook pages to fill in any empty spaces.
These are a set of cards strung together that show the various names for rabbits.
This is a classification flapbook for rabbits.
In this double flap Samira wrote and drew pictures of the smallest rabbit in the world (Pygmy rabbit) which can fit in the palm of your hand and the largest rabbit in the world (German Grey Rabbit) which can grow as big as a dog!
This is a tab book all about litter box training – yes it is possible to teach a rabbit to use a litter box but it takes ALOT of patience.
This is a nice little folding flap book all about rabbit-proofing … how to protect your furnishings and wires from their little nibbling teeth.
Here is a Venn diagram comparing rabbits and hares. I learned a thing or two while we read up on them.
This flap book contains drawings of things that can be given to pet rabbits for entertainment.
Under this flap Samira wrote some of the things rabbits like to eat.
This layered book shows the types and amounts of food pet rabbits eat and it also lists foods to keep away from.
Here we have another tab book all about rabbit behaviour such as how they live, noises they make, how they use scent etc.
A little fact flap.

And on the reverse of the lapbook are some fun activities and when you lift up the maze underneather is a drawing activity.
