Knights will teach you through reading text and hands-on projects that reinforce lessons in creative ways. Included are 13 lap booking project topics that incorporate coloring and drawing, as well as basic cutting skills and opportunities for penmanship for younger elementary students.
The reading text comes in two formats to print, resulting in full-size pages of text for a binder, or a 24-page booklet to store with the lap book. Also provided is the text on audio, so your child can read along with the narrator or color the pictures while listening!
Beautifully detailed masters are provided for all printable projects! Step-by-step illustrated directions contain printing and assembly instructions for the text booklet, each project, and the lap book assembly.
The menu also contains photos to aid you in viewing the finished projects. Should you wish to embellish the study with additional reading, a list of additional suggested resources is offered as well.

- For years now Home School in the Woods has been at the top of the lapbooking/unit study game with their amazing studies for homeschoolers, but they were mostly geared for the 3rd grade and up crowd. This summer however, they must have been feeling my silent prayers for something to cater to the younger set because they finally came out with a brand new line called Lap Paks! Lap Paks are essentially lapbooks surrounding a certain theme (so far they have Knights and Benjamin Franklin)... In the case of the Knights study, the booklet (which can either be printed and placed into a binder or you can print the smaller version to include in your Lap Pak) is written from the perspective of one of the Knights, giving it more of a living book feel than just a straight text about the time... I would also be remiss not to mention how highly I thought of the audio recording. It was a very enjoyable listen and ranked up there in skill with some of the best audio books I have listened to. - MacKenzie Monroe at "Bold Turquoise"
