Should I use the Activity Guide or Lapbooking Guide with the Sassafras Science novels?

Paige -

It depends on what your students will enjoy and how much you want to add to your studies. The lapbooking guide includes:

  • scientific demonstrations,
  • vocabulary,
  • additional book suggestions,
  • and lapbook instructions.

The activity guide includes:

  • chapter summaries,
  • encyclopedia readings,
  • additional book suggestions,
  • possible answers for the logbook pages,
  • scientific demonstrations,
  • copywork and dictation,
  • and additional activities.

The student materials in the lapbooking guide include templates to create a lapbook that documents what the students are learning, while the activity guide partners with the SCIDAT logbook which includes notebooking sheets to record what the students are learning. Using the activity guide will give you more options to choose from while using the lapbooking guide will give you a more focused approach.

Even so, both have all the basic components you need for homeschool science, so it is really up to your teaching and learning preferences. You can also read this post on lapbooks vs. notebooks to help you with your decision.
