Free Elections Lapbooking and Notebooking Unit


Update – Thanks to Mary Ann from The Homeschool Mom for giving us the link of the original poster of this wonderful resource! Linda Ackert originally posted this at the Denver Homeschool Examiner.

Here is a link to a free 85 page download, entitled “Elections for Lapbooking, Notebooking and General Study“. I wish I could tell you which blogger posted it, but I have not been able to figure that out. It is posted on Christian Home School Hub (though the download is not religious, as far as I can tell). Here is the description that I received:

2010 is an election year and with primaries right around the corner, this is the perfect time to download Elections for Lapbooking, Notebooking and General Study. Use the download time and time again. This isn’t a Presidential election year but save the download and use it again in 2012 (or anytime your children/students are studying government and elections!)

What will you find within the download? Pages devoted to help students begin and end their studies (through KWL – What I Know, What I Want to Learn and What I Learned), pages to be used if creating an election lapbook, vocabulary flashcards, maps, a good variety of notebooking pages appropriate for elementary through high school, timeline pages and more!
