We enjoy using the Express lapbooks from A Journey Through Learning as mini-unit studies. Sometimes it is nice to take a short break and incorporate a quick lapbook project. The Express lapbooks can be completed within 1-2 days and they only require one folder.

This week, one project we have added in our science studies is the Planets Express Lapbook. The lapbook includes a mini-study guide covering the planets in our solar system.

You can check out the sample pages.
