Manatee Lapbook

Pac-Man recently finished his final 1st grade lapbook, all about Manatees! I personally was thrilled with his choice as manatees were my favorite animal as a child and teen, I even adopted one when I was in high school! We both had a lot of fun with this unit, here’ s a few pics of some things we did along with his lapbook!

We did an experiment to learn about how manatees find fresh water when they are in the ocean. We had so much fun learning together and doing an experiment that actually worked! (not many Mommy-led science ideas work).
He had a blast painting an underwater scene for the cover of his lapbook… We got everything for this great lapbook from Homeschool Share! I was thrilled to not have to make any templates myself!

I found lots of great manatee books which I added here in our theme bookstore (on the right sidebar look under ocean-manatee). We didn’t get a chance to read all of these, but that’s only because Mommy couldn’t drag her prego hiney to the library!!! Thankfully we own a few!
