A Journey Through Learning was created by two homeschooling moms, Nancy and Paula. Take a moment to read their touching story. If you are not familiar with lapbooking you may wish to watch these how to videos.

One of the things I really love about A Journey Through Learning is they provide you with an exact placement guide for each booklet in your lapbook. You don't have to try to figure out what fits where!
Here is a clip of part of the placement guide for this lapbook:
The Earth is a 42 page e-book with directions for completing the lapbook, then each lapbook mini-book is accompanied by a page of text. No outside sources are needed to complete the lapbook. There are 14 mini-books, a book list along with some songs, poems and crafts are included as well.

One thing I wanted to mention is that in the poem section there is a poem by Jane Yolen called Earth Day that starts out, "I am the earth, the earth is me." It's a little pantheistic for me, but it's not really a part of the study and you certainly wouldn't have to read it. This would not prevent me from purchasing the study, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
Overall, we had a good time with these lapbooks and will likely complete more in the future. These lapbooks are especially fun for kids who enjoy crafts and making projects.
You can purchase Letters, Numbers and Shapes for $13 (as a download...see the link for more options) and The Earth is also available for $13 as a download and $21 printed.
