Seahorse Lapbook

IMAG2823

This is my daughter Samira’s lapbook on Seahorses. I found the templates for this lapbook over at Homeschool Share but I also created a few extra bits and pieces. You can download this lapbook HERE plus all the additional elements for this lapbook HERE.

This lapbook was made by taping two sheets of A3 card together side by side and then folding inwards until the lapbook closes as A4. Here is how it opens out.

I created this flap which contains a map to show seahorse distribution throughout the world.

I also designed these two flaps on the seahorse anatomy: one labelled and one blank.

This layered book contains details on the different parts of the seahorse’s anatomy.

For this shutter book Samira researched the largest and smallest species of seahorses, writing about them and drawing pictures under each flap.

IMAG2832

IMAG2833

Two fact flaps.

IMAG2834

In this flap Samira wrote about what seahorses eat and how they eat.

IMAG2835

And in this flap she wrote about why many species of seahorses are endangered and what can be done to help protect them.

IMAG2836

Two fact flaps about relatives of the seahorse.

IMAG2837

This flap contains a picture of a pipe fish and one of a sea dragon, both are similar to seahorses.

IMAG2839

Samira did some research to find out as many facts as possible about the sea dragon.

This accordion book shows a list of seahorse predators.

This accordion fold explains about seahorse defences. I have just noticed that Samira missed out a few words in these sentences. The top sentence should read: ‘Seahorses are not strong swimmers.’ The second sentence should read: ‘They wrap their tails around plants so that the water does not drag them away.’

At the top of the two centre pages are these four mini fact flaps.

IMAG2844

Samira wrote one fact in each.

IMAG2845

Samira used our ‘Fry to Seahorse’ lifecycle book to write all about seahorse reproduction in this flap.

She used the same book to complete this quick question flap book.

IMAG2849

Here are 3 more fact matchbook folds.

IMAG2850

All about seahorse habitats.

IMAG2851

How fast can a seahorse swim? Here’s the answer.

IMAG2852

On the inside page I stuck down these 4 reading comprehension pages all about seahorses.
