A lapbook is a hands-on, creatively designed portfolio that allows students to organize their learning into a small, keepsake “book”. It is a very engaging tool that motivates them to learn. And this is precisely what 2nd graders did within their last unit of inquiry titled “We are what we eat”. This unit helped them gain a deeper understanding of nutrition and healthy eating habits.
They created their own lapbook working in a cooperative way. By doing so, they put into practice and developed their thinking, research and self- management skills.
In addition, this task helped foster the development of the different IB Learner Profiles: reflective and knowledgeable skills that showcase what they learned.
