Is there a difference between notebooking and lapbooks?


Recommended Posts

Notebooking is usually writing something on a decorated page. Like maybe a place to write about someone and a place to put a picture of that person. It would most likely go in a three ring binder or something similar. You can see an example here: http://watermark.currclick.com/pdf_previews/15559-sample.pdf


Lapbooking is usually made on a manila folder. It has little projects that you've done pasted all over it. So maybe you made a little booklet about Abraham Lincoln and then pasted in the manila folder (which is usually folded more like a portfolio). Then you made a little foldout map of the civil war, so that gets pasted in there. So when you open the folder, you have lots of little booklets, etc. that have information. It's more interactive.

I'm not familiar with MOH folderbooks. I would think they are the same as a lapbook, but I think the term lapbook might be a copyrighted name? So they called them folderbooks.
