I saw this freebie today on facebook and was thrilled. Its perfect timing for us since we have been reading and learning in our Science about Natural Selection and Animal Adaptations etc.
I picked up this free lapbook that Hands of a Child has entitled "Animal Adaptations". (They reached their goal over on facebook for having over 4500 likes. This will be a perfect addition to our science and just had to share with my readers. Be sure and "like" them on Facebook if your on there!

Some folds we create on our own and add images and write the information down. But sometimes the writing can get exhausting for my youngest learner.
I hunted online all over for templates that you can "type it in" but didn't find much information at all. I did see a freebie over on Homeschool Share where if you subscribe to their blog you can get a full download of "type it in" lapbook folds. But I never got my download so that left me no where, again.
I went over and asked around and heard that Hands of a Child had a TII template pack. It was exactly what I was looking for.
So, if your like me and have been trying hard to find something like this, you can find it here.
It gives a brief overview of writing up a Lab Report and also a template he can follow if he wants. He found these helpful and I explained that he doesn't have to follow this template he can set up his lab any way he would like.
Happy Science Learning!
