More Beijing Olympics Links and Lapbook Photos

Below you will find links for more pages for the Olympics and pictures of my son Christopher's completed lapbook (age 11), pictures from my other son Nathan's incomplete... but working on it... lapbook minis and my own lapbook minis. I have one more project to do before I put my lapbook together. I will also put up a picture of what my lapbook cover will look like once I get it done. As always in my thoroughness I will give you the links to all the places I found the mini booklets and information. Also how I put together the booklets that I made up for us.

Enjoy...
and leave me a comment...
and check out the sale from Cindy Rushton in my post from Tuesday...
the Sale ends Sunday, Sept. 7th.

Section 1 of Christopher's 2008 Beijing Olympics Lapbook




On the top left flap is a wallet made from the instructions at
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggDaD47esew
we made it with colored computer paper

under that is a pocket made from the Library Pocket template at
http://www.homeschoolshare.com/documents/minit%20book%20templates/small_pocket.pdf
or make two at a time at
http://www.homeschoolshare.com/documents/minit%20book%20templates/pockets2.pdf
I just made the pocket as usual and folded the top down and put a dots of velcro on the tab to keep it closed

The money in the wallet and the coins were made from this site
http://www.chinatoday.com/fin/mon/
I printed the money on regular weight computer paper we cut them out - not all of them just a few - and pasted them back to back so they really look like money, the coins I printed on cardstock to make a little more sturdy and we cut and pasted them back to back also.

Center section - top left
FUWA Booklet outside and inside are shown
inside pages were printed from
my Dinah Zike's Big Book of Projects pg 87 Blank Sheet
pictures and information were from:
http://en.beijing2008.cn/spirit/beijing2008/graphic/n214068254.shtml


Next to that to the right is his Olympic Mascots through the years booklet
for details of that see my previous post here:
http://debbiesdigest.blogspot.com/2008/08/2008-beijing-olympic-lapbook-minis-and.html

Center section - under the FUWA booklet
Asia Classification Cards
http://www.homeschoolshare.com/documents/continent_cards/asia.pdf

NOTE: make sure you leave out the Taj Mahal picture when you do it - Taj Mahal is in India not China the rest of the Asia cards are fine.
I printed them on cardstock and we put them in the large
Homeschool Share Pocket
We wrote facts about the cards on the back.

Next to the Asia Classification cards are the
Asian animals cards from here:
http://www.homeschoolshare.com/documents/asiacards.pdf
in a small pocket from here:
http://www.homeschoolshare.com/documents/minit%20book%20templates/small_pocket.pdf
or make two at a time at
http://www.homeschoolshare.com/documents/minit%20book%20templates/pockets2.pdf
I printed the Asian Animals cards 8 on a page, which because they are pdf and already 4 on a page means I printed two pages on piece of cardstock. They fit in the small pocket just fine that way if you trim the top front of the pocket so you can see the name of the animals and get them out easier. I also trimmed the back so it would not stick up to far. We wrote facts on the back of each card like we did with the Asia Classification Cards. You could do them large and just print each page as is but that takes more ink and I was trying to conserve.
I did a Google image search for the Asian animal my kids wanted to put on the front of the pocket and printed it 2" by2" to fit on the pocket.

On the right tab at the top is the
Missionary Report Form Pocket
Each of us created the contents of the pocket in a different way I will tell you about each in the section under the slide show that contains the picture. Christopher did his biography of a missionary that went to China on a quarter page from my Dinah Zike's Big Book of Projects pg 87 Blank Sheet.

Under the Missionary Report Form Pocket is the
Bible verse pocket and card
We only used the Pocket however because I wanted the boys to copy the verses as copywork.
For the verses the boys used

Section 2 of Christopher's 2008 Beijing Olympics Lapbook




left flap and bottom center are two mini file folders from Tobins Lab
Lap Book tm, Mini File Folders-Rainbow
in the file folders we put biography pages about Olympic athletes past and present using biography pages from notebookingpages.com
http://www.notebookingpages.com/uploads/PDF_Files/Biography/npc_basic_biography_pages%201.pdf
I printed the pages, reducing them to fit the mini file folder. I am sorry I don't know exactly what % I reduced them to, I should have written it down, but start with 80% and go from there. You will just have to do it trial and error like I did. Next time I do something like this I will keep better track of the reduction %.
Or you could use http://www.homeschoolshare.com/documents/olympics/famous_olympians_files.pdf

Top and middle of the center section are http://www.homeschoolshare.com/documents/minit%20book%20templates/venn_small.pdf
comparing Ancient and Modern Olympics
Christopher also did one comparing Athens and Beining's Opening Ceremonies

on the right flap Christopher has the mini book that compares an athlete's diet to his diet. We used the mini booklet Compare & Contrast Diets Matchbook
on the right side of the mini booklet there is a food pyramid from
http://teamnutrition.usda.gov/Resources/mpk_poster2.pdf
under that we included an adult food pyramid that includes additions for athletes from
http://www.sfsn.ch/index_EN

it was so thick it hardly fit in the

Pictures 16 and 17
Souvenirs of my "trip"
using the
the large Homeschool Share Pocket
I put "souvenirs" of my trip
a post card from me to my friend in Minnesota... that I did not actually send because I did not actually go...but written as if I was in China at the Olympics... got it??

just do a search on google image for photos of the olympics and other souvenirs you may want to include like coins, t-shirts, pins, FUWA dolls, etc.

we found a picture of a ticket here and printed it for our souvenirs
http://www.bpcouncil.com/var/10/3426-Olympic%20ticket.jpg

Pictures 18 and 19
Asian animals cards - from here:
http://www.homeschoolshare.com/documents/asiacards.pdf
for details of how I made them smaller and where to get the pocket from see section 1 of Chistopher's lapbook above

Picture 20
Olympic Timeline Fan blank
I used the blank ones and printed a bunch on cardstock because I want to do one card for each year of the olympics summer and winter because I do not expect to do an Olympic Lapbook again

Picture 21
inside of one of my Can You Believe It? Trifolds

Picture 22 and 23
I printed out the "dolls" at 60% but wish I had made them a little smaller so I could fit them like I wanted on the front. I wanted them to link hands in a circle on the front of my lapbook but they would not fit. I am not sure what size they would have to be to do that. So I improvised and put 6 on the front and I have 3 left that I will put inside my lapbook once it is done.

Another idea is to put them in a pocket so your child could take them out and play with them.
they are not regular paper dolls with tabs so you can change the clothes the clothes get glued on, but they are sooo cute.

The link under that has very cute "paper dolls" (not just for girls) of different cultures and different sports that would be especially good for your Olympic unit and other friends for other units... these are soooooo cute :-)

I also used the little friends to decorate one of my containers that I keep on my computer desk




Extras:
a coloring page to include in your lapbook or use for the cover if you want

a game of dominoes with Olympic Symbols on them

WOW! Very thorough! We have to finish ours but they won't be as indepth as yours (granted, my kids are 5 & 7). Lots of good stuff in yours! Thanks for sharing!

Debbie,
I'm stunned at how well thought out and how well put together this lapbook is! Your 11yo must have had a ball putting it together. And learning to write your name in Chinese?! That's just cool! I think I'm all motivated and inspired again! Ha ha!
