The Grand Canyon Lapbook Review and GIVEAWAY!

In the Hands of a Child.  This time, my 8 and 11 year olds and I put our hands to work assembling The Grand Canyon From a Creationist Perspective.What a pleasure it was to review another quality lapbook from In the Hands of a Child.  This time, my 8 and 11 year olds and I put our hands to work assembling The Grand Canyon From a Creationist Perspective.

What is a lapbook?

In a nutshell, a lapbook is a hands-on learning tool that enables each child to recount what they've learned about a particular subject in a creative style with a written narration as they go.  Each fact is noted on a creative paper cut-out that will be affixed to a specially folded file set.  When finished, the student has a permanent record of their work.

Fun and easy to do!  Lapbooking is for all ages!

All this information folded up into an easy to store file-folder!
First, make copies of the activity pages, gather pens, pencils, scissors, glue sticks and a stapler.  You are now ready to start your journey!  Just follow the included schedule and read the assigned information pages followed by the corresponding activity pages. All the directions that you need are included!  Yes, it's THAT easy!

The beginning of this guide takes the student through the creation, history and location of the Grand Canyon with a look at the ecology of the area all with a Biblical Worldview.  This lapbook works well as a stand alone study -OR- along side another curriculum.

We are not strangers to lapbooking.  The beautiful thing about this hands-on style of learning is that it is so flexible.  We've done lapbooks on plain paper, colored paper, written then all out first before affixing to the folder and on and on.  This time we chose to cut out all the activities and paste them onto the folders first before writing the answers.

Working through the study, my children answered questions such as:


*How did God create the Grand Canyon?

*What three factors cause the Canyon to continue to change and erode? Give two examples of the erosion process.

*What did Major John Wesley Powell and his expedition team do?

*Describe a butte, mesa and valley.


And much more!

In the Hands of a Child also gives you the option of making the elements easier (for younger children) or more difficult (for older).  The Grand Canyon lapbook is targeted for grades 3-6.  But, you can add to it for older children or scale it back for younger.

For younger students - cut and paste or trace and paste answers.

If you've never tried this method of learning, you owe it to your homeschool to try!

In fact - you can enter to win a copy!

One blessed winner will receive a downloadable version of The Grand Canyon from a Creationist Perspective !

  15. We used to live in Arizona and I refused to move to Arkansas unless we visited on our way to Arkansas. I loved it, it's so beautiful. We video tapped it, I thought I was scanning slow enough to really enjoy looking watching it at a later date. Believe it or not, I didn't take nearly long enough! lol Didn't do it justice. We hope to travel back next year to visit family and friends. I want to take our son by to see it also, You really get an idea of your place in the universe when you look down into the canyon.
    Also, we really love using Hands of a Child's lapbooks. We've only done a couple of the lapbooks for "fun", like the Chocolate a Bubbles lapbooks. Mostly, we have collected all the American History lapbooks. It might be fun to do another for the fun of it. Especially before we go on our trip next year!
