I have used some of their lapbooks in the past. I have bought the e-versions online and printed them here at home.Mom of 5 wrote:I am just wondering how or if they flow together.

I take complete responsibility for this, but here is the sad reality of a lapbooking session with my two boys....I hand them something to cut and then "re-trim" it for them because they cut crooked. I give them something to tape and then "re-tape" it for them because they didn't get it in the exact spot I wanted it. I do some of the labeling because I don't "trust" them to get the lettering to fit in the exact space that it needs to for our fold out such-and-such. So, my boys lose interest, wander off, and leave me to (perfectly) assemble a lapbook by myself at the table! This is what happens when wonderfully laid back and creative little people sit down to work with a control freak!!! :) Whew! Confession!!
On a more serious note, I'm not sure I know of topics that would exactly relate to Adventures. However, many topics in Adventures lend themselves to cute lapbooks that you can come up with all on your own. For instance, in week one we made a Pledge of Allegiance lapbook and it was adorable. (I let them do it ALONE and it turned out GREAT!) We also did one for Native Americans and one for Colonial Life. I keep them simple (since I have previously mentioned perfectionistic tendencies) and try to let the kids have creative lisence.
IMHO, the ones we have put together as a result of our Adventures studies have been more fun and more relevant than the premade ones I have purchased online. I do think lapbooks are a fun and creative way to capture our work. Not sure that gives you much help. I have nothing against the ones I've purchased, but those dictate your studies as opposed to making a book on our own as a summary of what we have learned in Adventures. Two different approaches, I suppose.
