|U. S. Elections takes you through the election process with reading material and hands-on projects that will reinforce lessons, as well as introduce you to new information. Included are 21 lap booking projects that incorporate creative writing, coloring and drawing, research, and more.
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 work on projects 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.
