Holland Lapbook

This is another lapbook that my oldest daughter and I made several years ago. We got the overall template from here. We chose the country of Holland, since that is where some of my ancestors are from. My parents both had grandparents from Holland. 

On the front cover, we found a color map of Holland/ the Netherlands, printed and cut it and placed it on a blue file folder. We also used red file folder, since those two colors are stripes in the Holland flag (along with white). 

Left folder open:

We really enjoyed making this lap book about discovering more about the country of Holland (the Netherlands)! We enjoyed learning about the people, places and culture of a new country that we didn't know lots about. My daughter helped with the cutting and some of the writing. We enjoy looking at this lapbook occasionally and seeing what we made and relearning it too!
