THE FRONT COVER

This year, for Science, my children have been studying Botany using Exploring Creation with Botany. At the beginning of the year I purchased the Notebooking Journal, Exploring Creation with Botany Lapbook Lessons 1-5 and Exploring Creation with Botany Lapbook Lessons 6-13.
I really should have ordered just one or the other (Journals or Lapbooks), and I really loved the new Notebooking Journal, however, since my children really enjoy lapbooking, we opted to complete the lapbooks this year. We have been taking our time, and we just finished the first Lap Book (of two) a couple weeks ago and moved on to the second half of the book. Here are some pictures of the completed lap books:
~ INSIDE FOLDER #1 ~
Lesson 1 Vocabulary; Vascular and Non-Vascular Plants; On What Day; What is Binomial Nomenclature; Lesson 2 Vocabulary; Germination; Taxonomy; Latin
~ INSIDE FOLDER #2 ~

~ INSIDE FOLDER #3 ~

Working on the Seed Dispersal Mini-Books
As the children completed their mini-books, we stored them in a plastic zip-lock bag until they were ready to assemble to whole lap book. We started doing this after a cup of water was spilled on most of their mini-books for Part 2 of their Astronomy Lap Book Last Year. ;)
These illustrations were done by Captain. I just loved the detail that went into this mini book! It looks like I only got a picture of his, and not the other two. . .
~ INSIDE FOLDER #4 ~
Dry Fruits; Fleshy Fruits; Name these Flowers; Evidence; Why do most; Draw Your Favorite Flower; Amazing Fact; Word Search
