Polar Bear LapBook FREEBIE!

Friends~I was just welcomed into the world of LapBooks by my teamie Mrs. Thompson!  That women is a foldable genius!  I am so excited to show you what she helped me create today!  We took my Polar Bear Unit and turned it into a LapBook.  Really, we shrunk pages, folded them, cut them and glued them into this beautiful assessment tool!  I am so excited to see my students put this baby together using all that they have learned about Polar Bears!  

Click the HERE  to grab a FREE copy of my Lapbook!  



I am so excited!  My kiddos will be filling in a CAN HAVE ARE Chart and coloring in a map showing where the Polar Bears Live.  They will create a Venn Diagram on the back and also write child friendly definitions for vocabulary words.   They will create a flip book of what Polar Bears eat and make a diagram of their skin and blubber.  All the while, I will be doing Then Blubber Glove Experiment with small groups.  They will then record their learning from the experiment in the center of their LabBook. 

Holy Moly!  I am HOOKED!  I can't wait to get these grooving with my kiddos on Saturday.  Yes, I said Saturday!  We have a make up day due to our NO Snow Day last Friday.  At lease I know that there will be lots of good learning going on in room 331!
I'm off to make a grading rubric for this LapBook!

  1. Isn't it amazing how excited we can get when we try something new? I put our same boring social studies information together in a lapbook and nearly squealed with excitement at how it all fit together beautifully!

  3. What great timing! We just started our Polar Animal unit this week. Thanks so much, I can't wait to give this a try. I can't believe you are going to school on Saturday. What a wonderful day you have planned for your children. Enjoy.

  4. This was pretty cute, could have used more instructions from the inside, but I was able to figure most of it out from the picture. This was my first lapbook project. I think it was a great one to start with! Thank you!
