My students started the lapbook only a few days into our study of the Civil War. As we learned about a new area or topic they would add that to their book. We were limited in the time they had to work on it each day so it took about 4 weeks to finish the project. I loved the lapbooks and how is allowed the students to learn just a little bit about many different areas/topics of the Civil War and put all the information together in a fun way. I have attached the assignment my students received and a few pictures of our lapbooks.

|Flip books in the lapbook are a great way to display information.|
|Pockets can hold cards with information.|
|The 'Who, What, Where, Why' flaps are an easy way to organize the information.|
