Above is the completed lapbook we made using the Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett Dolphin Days Unit. The kids love her units, I think the Youtube clips are their favorite. But they are always very educational and lots of fun.
This unit study had minimal writing, so made it favorable to my son (who you may remember hates writing). The vocabulary and some of the other activities were cut and paste. Some other writing was involved.
You can revisit what was in our preschool workboxes for the unit HERE (including FREE printables made by me and links to the printables shown above). The tissue paper dolphin was printed from HERE onto velum.
C also had a little sewing project, though I think I was over ambitious with it, it started out well, but he lost interest and I finished most of it.
I found the pattern HERE and enlarged it slightly with my scanner, then cut it out of felt.
C read the following books:
He also watched the Currclick Magic Tree House Book Club meeting for book #9 (Free to join, this month’s book is #19). It’s FREE to join!
