Our Flower Lapbook

The children are really into exploring outside and discovering all that ALLAH has given us, so I decided to at least do something productive as they get their hands dirty. For a while, the weather has been sunny and warm one day, cloudy and cool the next. AlhamduLILLAH we were able to get out and enjoy it.


I was inspired by LapbooksbyCarisa, but since I don't have a membership to Enchanted Learning anymore I had to find free worksheets elsewhere.

We started off with a PowerPoint presentation of the parts of a flower.

As we went through it, the children studied their flowers (and weeds, lol).

This is the front of our lapbook - it's nothing fancy and I'm sure some of you creative sisters out there can make it much better.


Parts of the Flower Lapbook I

You can see the Parts of a Flower worksheet (pdf)which is a basic version for younger children so they don't have to stumble over the vocabulary and a word search that she hasn't completed yet.


The inside cover has vs 20-21 of Surah 9. At-Taubah with a pretty picture. Sorry it looks so small here. If you click it, you can enlarge it on my flickr page.


Surah 9. At Taubah vs 20-21


Next are several little booklets.
Open Me

The one at the top left is a picture that my daughter drew. Just a basic picture to take up space.

Black and White Garden

Next, is another color page for labeling the parts of a flower (pdf).

Introducing the Parts of a Flower


The small matchbook in the lower left-hand corner can be labeled on the inside.


Parts of a Plan
............

Flowers, stem, leaves, roots

We also did a little origami (pdf). The pink tulip (above)is hers and the purple one is mine. They are very easy to make and now of course, she wants ME to make a whole garden for her!


There is also a comprehensive/reading section (pdf),she hasn't done it yet, we ran out of time and a coloring grid (pdf),and color by number pictures.


We made a flower (sort of) on the back with the answers for the comprehensive/reading section.

Also there is a bee/flower jigsaw that you can try - you have to download and save it.

Whew! That's it, I need to go lie down now, lol.
