Dinosaur lapbook

Small has been working on dinosaurs lately - which is one of his favourite topics, and we've put together a dinosaur lapbook so he can look back on what we've covered.

All the resources used were free.  The dinosaur alphabet was downloaded from First School, the word booklet, mini books, fact file and dino photo book were from Kids Dinosaurs, the dino on the back was from Primary Treasure Chest, and the rest is from bits and pieces I had lying around.  There are other dinosaur lapbooks out there, but many seem to be based on 'creationism' which I don't subscribe to.

While working on this project, we've also read Usborne Beginners Dinosaurs, and Usborne Discovery Dinosaurs, and Small has played interactive dino games on the computer.

We enjoyed putting together and colouring our dinosaur lapbook, and although this was our first foray into lapbooking, I suspect it won't be our last.

Until next time. x


  1. Thank you so much for this! I have been looking and looking for something with dinosaurs that wasn't creationism as well. You have truly helped me out.

  2. This is so great! We also don't follow the "creationism" path. This was such a nice find. Thank you so much!

  3. Just spotted this - thank you so much for using the mini-books from kids-dinosaurs. So great to see it in action. Small has done a great job on the lapbook.

  4. i have the opposite problem. i have been trying to find dinosaur lapbook material that does not based on 'evolution'. This lapbook is very cute though!
