5th Grade Praying Mantis Lapbook


Cyan’s Praying Mantis Lapbook has several pages added.  I used this story starter page and these worksheet pages from, and then a few pages from Homeschool Bin


I simply stapled the pages to the center portion of the lapbook so they worked like a flip up book.


She also made this: Praying Mantis Cutout (remember to print on cardstock!)

Under the pages she had tons of mini books with information on them. 



She did nearly all of the mini books from the Praying Mantis Animal Study Lapbook.





She also added some pictures and captions from our own mantis hatching experience. 

My favorite part of this lapbook was a few days after it was done.  I have a few friends that we gave baby mantis to when we had ours… one of them asked if Cyan could help her kids do a lapbook that was similar.  She was able to tell them ALL about mantis, their lifecycle, what they eat, their body structure.  It was cool to hear how much she retained from doing this project!  That is my favorite part of unit studies… the kids retain SO much!
