After the excitement of the holidays and the anticipation of the new year, homeschoolers sometimes find themselves hitting a winter slump.  I know I’ve felt that way from time to time.  That’s when we turn to lapbooking to inject some creative learning fun into our days.

Take a Virtual Field Trip

Since the weather can prevent us from getting out and about, we find winter a good time to study other places, by taking a virtual field trip. Are your kids curious about another country? Do they want to visit a famous landmark but it’s too far away? Why not try a lapbook to create your own “travel folder” as if you were really making the trip.

Here are some of our favorite lapbooks to study landmarks and other countries:

Travel the World Country Reports Lapbook

Antarctica lapbook

Country Studies Lapbook (use over and over to study any country)

America’s Historical Landmarks lapbook

Curl up with a Good Book

When the weather outside is frightful, it’s a great time to just cuddle up with a good book. Whether you’re doing read-alouds with your kids or they’re reading on their own, creating a lapbook to display what they’ve learned can suddenly turn a good book into a cross-curricular lesson plan! There are tons of choices, but here are just a few examples:

Charlotte’s Web

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Stuart Little

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

Study the Weather

While you’re watching the snow fall, try learning about it with a lapbook!  You can learn all about why snow is white, winter weather patterns across the country and even polar habitats and the animals that thrive there.
