At the beginning of the school year, Farm Kid1 read Farmer Boy & did a few activities relating to the book, including making this lapbook.
Left: Farm Kid1 read from the Farmer Boy book my mom gave me when I was a kid.
Right: I scanned the cover & used the print out for the front of the lapbook.
On the left is a character sketch of Almanzo & on the right is a blueprint of the Wilder Farm. These two ideas came from Homeschool Share. They have a pretty good Farmer Boy unit worth checking out.
We were also studying animal classification at the time. So, Farm Kid1 filled out a worksheet classifying the animals on the Wilder Farm. The coloring sheet came from the Cheryl Harness website.
This was the first lapbook Farm Kid1 completed for school. He loved it – as did I.
