We’ve finished our unit study on Australia. After completing our Australia Lapbook we decided to make this Marsupials Lapbook. I found the files for this lapbook on the Homeschool Share website and I created a few extra templates and a Marsupials Wordsearch. If you want to make a similar lapbook you can download the additional files in one folder HERE.
This lapbook is made by taping 3 sheets of A3 card side by side and then folding inward until the lapbook closes in a square shape. Here is how it looks when folded out.
We learned that Mammals are divided into 3 groups with two of those groups: monotremes and marsupials being unique to Australia.
Marsupials are characterised by the pouches or skin flaps on their bodies used to protect their offspring.
We also researched to find out which marsupial is the largest and which is the smallest.
Yusef did some research into other Marsupials using Wikipedia.
We found out lots of interesting facts about kangaroos and koalas.
Amina wrote out some interesting facts about kangaroos and then put them in this kangaroo pouch pocket.
Yusef wrote all about wombats and Tasmanian Devil … we finally understand why the cartoon Tasmanian Devil ‘Taz’ is always spinning like a tornado!
Samira wrote up this flap about how opossums play dead to fool predators.
And on the reverse of the lapbook is a cryptogram on mammals and another word activity.
