As part of our Weekly Theme we have been learning about deserts. We started out by making a Deserts Lapbook, before completing this lapbook and finally finishing with a Camel Lapbook. During my search for desert theme activities, I came across this adorable tot-pack about desert animals … look forward to making it with my little Zeynab in future insha’Allah. You can also check out our Camel Notebook Pages.
I downloaded this Desert Animals Lapbook from Homeschool Share and I added in the following elements which you can download below:
This is how our Desert Animals Lapbook opens out. The kids chose various elements to work on for themselves and then when we combined the lapbook we read it all together.
Some general facts and information about the desert completed by Samira
Nocturnal and Diurnal desert animals
Yusef learned all about the Gila Monster
A venn diagram on the jackrabbit vs rabbit
Desert reptiles including tortoise, iguana and rattlesnake.
Basma’s information about the Kangaroo Rat (Djerboa)
Facts about scorpions and tarantulas.
Amina’s flapbook about coyotes.
Basma’s T-book about roadrunners.
And on the reverse of the lapbook we did an animal classification activity.
