First opened page. The left side is the back of the cover. The illustration shows stages of a penguins life. The picture on the bottom is of a magellanic penguin. On the right is the food web in a cold dessert biome. At the center (the line that looks like a fold in the middle), is where the lapbook opens up to the right.
Parts of a penguin on top and Types of penguins and their sizes on the bottom. The flap on the right is math.
This is the right side opened up. The pictures on the left and right are of different types of penguins. The colored picture in the center is actually a color, cut & paste activity showing what daddy penguins do to care for the eggs while the mommies are out fetching food. The wheel shows the life cycle of a penguin.
It's pretty basic, but really teaches a lot. There were many more activities and books that we didn't include in the lapbook simply for lack of space. One activity we did (I wish I had taken a picture) was of the girls trying to carry a potato (representing an egg) on top of their feet, as the daddy penguins do. Even using their pants to serve as the flap of skin on a penguin, the "egg" kept falling off! As they giggled through it, they learned how daddy penguins must walk very carefully to protect their precious cargo!
