Botany Lapbook Progress

I am participating in another week of Blogging Through the Alphabet this week and the focus letter is B. We've been studying Botany using Apologia resources and the A Journey Through Learning's Apologia Exploring Creation with Botany Lapbook. I wanted to update you today with our progress.  As you know I reviewed the Exploring Creation with Botany Lapbook and we've continue to use it throughout the year at a slower pace.

We are currently working through Lesson 4 Pollination in the textbook and digging deeper into the topics and concepts using experiments, activities, field trips, literature, video, lapbooking, and note-booking. We are having a blast!

My daughter still enjoys the study and is learning soooo much! Her research, writing, and note-booking skills are improving. She's been able to focus on and summarize the most important and relevant information. The lapbook definitely adds a hands-on component to her learning.

Look at all the mini-books she's created below and these mini-books are only for Lesson 4. This is our second folder which covers Lesson 4-6. It's gonna be a HUGE lapbook to share with others when we complete it at the end of the year. Last week my daughter learned about Self-Pollination and The Pollinated Flower. She is showing you one of the mini-books in her hand below.     

I will link this post at Blogging Through the Alphabet hosted at Hopkins Homeschool, DoodleMom's Homeschooling Life, and Biblical Womanhood. Visit the party to link-up your Letter B post. 


  1. Keep it up, young lady. It is looking good. It is great to see that it is helping her writing and note-taking, as well. Definitely reason to keep on. Glad she is enjoying it.

  2. I love A Journey Through Learning! They are so hands on that it makes it fun for the kids! Thank you for linking up with us!

  3. Such beautiful work! None of my older student enjoyed scrapbooking, but I'm hoping my upcoming twins will! Thanks for linking up with us!
