As part of our Oceans Unit Study last year, the kids worked together to complete this Jellyfish lapbook. After a busy year and a new addition to our family I have just gotten around to putting the lapbook together.
The main lapbook templates were from the Homeschool Share website but I also designed and downloaded a few extra elements to suit all of my children. You can download the templates and activities by clicking on the links below:

This is how the lapbook looks when folded out:
My daughter, Samira did some research about the Box Jellyfish, one of the most venomous creatures on Earth.
My son, Yusef did some research and recorded general facts about Jellyfish.
We watch some videos on Youtube that explained the Lifecycle of the Jellyfish:
- Jellyfish Lifecycle Animation
- Jellyfish Lifecycle Detailed Animation
- Jellyfish Lifecycle with Underwater Video
- Jellyfish Reproduction
My seven year old daughter, Amina completed this Jellyfish Lifecycle Diagram, colouring the four main stages and then writing small annotations to explain each stage.
Samira then completed these flaps with information and diagrams about the Jellyfish Lifecycle.
This is the anatomy diagram which we discussed and then labelled with annotations.
Amina also wrote about how Jellyfish propel themselves through the water.
Basma, my six year old completed this shutter book which shows the parts of the body that Jellyfish do have and those that it doesn’t.
