What are foldables?
Foldables are multi-dimensional graphic organizers that can be used for skills reinforcement, practice, and/or information organizing.
We call them lapbooks.
Early in our homeschooling career we purchased Dinah Zike’s Big Book of Books and Activities, which was full of hundreds of foldables, booklets, and manipulatives.
We have also used her Great Science Adventures from Commonsense Press, one of Cathy Duffy’s top 100 picks, with success.
Dinah Zike’s Foldables is a 51-page eBook full of foldables with easy directions, application ideas, tips, and notes, and is free to read online.
