We’ve been finishing off our unit study on the Polar Regions. This is my son, Yusef’s lapbook on the Inuit and Eskimo people. Before starting this lapbook I looked online for any templates but there seem to be very few available. So with the help of the First Peoples of Canada Website I made most of my own templates. Listed below are the lapbook templates. Just click on them one by one to download the PDF you require.

It’s quite amazing… we watched video 1 and video 2 showing exactly how this is done. and the second is an igloo-shaped flap which we doubled up so that Yusef could write all the detail about how igloos are built, the different types of igloos and what they are used for.
