Fun and knowledge collide to spark learning through lapbooking! Why use only worksheets or workbooks when your child can create his or her own complete lesson book to show off to dad or grandparents, pull out for future reference, and then easily tuck away for recordkeeping. Your hands-on learner just hit the jackpot, because not only does A Journey Through Learning offer stand-alone lapbooks, but they also offer lapbooks that correspond with some of the most popular homeschool curriculum like Classical Conversations or Apologia.
The Homeschool Review Crew has been reviewing the download version of the lapbooks and activity books from A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks that include:
Classical Conversations Cycle 3 JUNIOR Activity Book Grades K-2 and Classical Conversations Cycle 3 Activity Book Grades 3-6. These books correspond with Classical Conversations curriculum.
Apologia Elementary titles found on the Apologia Curriculum page. Most are intended for Grades 2-7. Each corresponds with Apologia curriculum as listed. Included on their Apologia Curriculum is:
- Apologia Flying Creatures of the Fifth Day Lapbook
- Apologia Swimming Creatures of the Fifth Day Lapbook
- Apologia Land Animals of the Sixth Day Lapbook
- Apologia Exploring Creation with Botany Lapbook

And two stand-alone lapbooks that come with a study guide included: An Overview of the 20th Century Grades 2-7 and The Greatest Inventors Grades 2-8.Lapbooks are a fun hands-on way for students to expand their learning on a topic. The booklets are easy to assemble using file folders and other materials you probably already have in your schooling items around the house such as cardstock, glue, scissors, crayons stapler, etc. Each portion of the lapbooks include miniature booklets, display notes sections, and other interactive components that the student assembles and attaches to the lapbook file folders. Once all of the pieces are completed and attached to the file folder lapbook, the project is complete.
What makes A Journey Through Learning lapbooks stand out from other lapbook designs is in the way they are designed. Each lapbook or activity book is set out in the actual order you will be using it in. There is no shuffling from section to section. The lapbooks also include full-color illustrations or a choice for a coloring book style option if you have a child who would rather color their own.
