Pirates Lapbook by Adrienne

Adrienne completed her lapbook on Pirates last week. I am very happy with her work!
Last month, I had asked Andre and Adrienne to both select a topic and present their research
in either a lapbook or notebook format.
The mini books and set up of the lapbook were all their choices.
Adrienne read a ton of books on pirates
and decided which information to include in her lapbook.

The following photos show you the inside of the lapbook
and details on some of the mini books.
At the end of the post, I added a list of all the mini books included.

Mini books:

Food: What Pirates at and drank
Pirates around the world
Nautical and piratical terms
What is a pirate?
Jobs (on board)
Forms of punishment
Women pirates
Inside a captain's cabin
Famous pirates flags
Famous and infamous pirates
Bucanners, privateers and pirates
Pirate flags by our family (drawings)
Sizes of ships

Here are two more photos to show an overall view of the lapbook.
If you are interested in lapbooks, a wonderful place to start is


  1. There is a lot of infomation in that lapbook. I like the fact that she made everything. It is something to be very proud of.

  2. What a great study! And, I love how lapbooks allow you to look back & review & remember what you've learned. We did a big unit on Japan a few years ago. I wish I had a lapbook so we could look back at it as we prepare to actually travel to Japan!

  3. That is fantastic! I prefer the DIY lapbooks like this one. I think there is more learning going on.

    Pirates are fascinating. Criminals, yet intriguing.


I ♥ comments! Thank you for stopping by.
