Lapbook on Israel

Shalom! This week we finally finished our lap book on Israel. Earlier I showed you our completed lap book on Turkey. Israel was the next country we were studying in our tour of the Holy Land. We are using Ann Voskamp's text A Child's Geography - Explore the Holy Land and we love it! I think the study of Israel was especially fun for the boys as Jay spent a bit of time in Israel before we met. He has a whole photo album of pictures he took of the exact same places we talked about in our study. So, he could talk about those fascinating locales with more detail than the books and was able to answer the boys' questions. They really love studying these countries as they can now picture where people like Jesus or Abraham or John the Baptist lived and died. What a great way to make the Bible really come to life! I also found a Hebrew printing practice sheet for them to try writing the Hebrew Aleph Bet in block letter style. They really enjoyed that. They also loved seeing their names written in Hebrew and will now sometimes write their names in Hebrew on their assignments! Next week we start our study on Egypt and I am really looking forward to learning more about that country!

If you are using Ann's book while studying Israel and looking for a lap book, send me an email and I will gladly send you the file! Why not save you the hours of work it took me to make it?! :)


  1. Hi Chantelle,
    I just happened upon your blog and I love it. This year my children and I are studying Ann Voskamp's A Child's Geography of the Holy Land and your lapbooks are exactly what we would love to use to accompany our study. Are you willing to send the Turkey file to us? My email is Thanks so much!

  2. We are studying Ann Voskamp's book also. We would love to have the files for any of the countries . We are starting with Israel first since we would like to be studying this in preparation for Christmas. Thank you. Bonita

  3. Bonita, I would love to send you the files however, since you left not contact information, it is impossible to track you down. Could you send me an email or leave yours in another comment?

  4. Greetings! I have special ed students who I believe could do this. Can you please send me the file. Thanks for all the work you've done. Very impressive and so meaningful.

  5. I am about to do a study with my 1st graded about ancient Israel and woul like to try a lap book. Do you think you book would work for that? I would love a copy of the template. Michelle.
