WebKinz Lapbook


















Okay- I finally gave in to the tsunami that is WebKinz! Kid #2 loves WebKinz and has way too many of them, so I decided to try to create a WebKinz lapbook for her. I found a website that had coloring pages for the cover (http://www.wacky-packages.org/how-to-draw-webkinz/webkinz-coloring-pages.htm. First, I had her choose her favorite ten WebKinz. I used the index card lapbook templates from Homeschoolhelper (http://www.homeschoolhelperonline.com/lapbooks.htm) and then I copied the pictures of her favorites from the Ganz website. For the different pages of the index cards I choose to have her write the WebKinz facts (W Facts) for the animal and then on the next card the "real" animal facts (Animal Facts).














Secondly, I created a Quizzy' Question Corner out of the matchbook template from Homeschoolhelper.com, and for the questions I used the fan book template. I just wrote questions that pertained to what we are learning right now. Then I created a Wheel of Wow using the wheel template from Homeschoolhelper.com. I just choose the prizes based on what I have heard the kids talking about when they play WebKinz.














Finally, I had some room left on the lapbook and I asked Kid#2 what else I could put in the book that would interest her. She really wanted a Gem Hunt, which of course I had to create from scratch. To do this I used Word and created this picture. Under the "rocks" I placed different colored shapes with two digit numbers written on them. The instructions for the game are for her to find two gems and then add the numbers together. We are working on addition of two digit number right now and this gives her a little added practice.

After we got it all together, she was anxious to show Dad, her brothers, and even in the neighbor!
