For the past several weeks, my son and I have had fun learning with the HISTORY Through the Ages Hands-on History Lap-Pak: U.S. Elections by Home School in the Woods.
This hands-on activity really helped both of us learn how the elections work and let us explore the history of how they came to be. This is actually the first lapbook we’ve ever done together, even though we have been homeschooling for six years.
The directions for assembling the lapbook were great. The visuals and instructions were easy to understand and follow. I did have to help quite a bit with the cutting, taping, and gluing of the individual parts and pieces that make up the lapbook. It IS titled ‘hands-on’ and does require a lot of the teacher’s help. My son is eleven and I still did the majority of the cutting and taping while he did the actual assembling of the lap book and the coloring of it. If your children are younger, you will probably be helping them even more.
One thing I really appreciated about this curriculum is the fact that they give you two options for the writing part of the lapbook. You can print out papers that are already filled in or you can have your student fill them in. My son is not a huge fan of writing, so I was able to let him skip that part of the project and I just printed them out for him.
Thanks for stopping in to read this review! I hope you consider trying this lapbook, especially for a child who is around my son’s age of eleven, as it really did help him to learn about the United States election process.
