The Mystery of History Volume IV—Folderbooks (PDF)


Designed by Bright Ideas Press, a Folderbook (also known as a Lapbook™) is a visually appealing cardstock keepsake that students can cut, fold, color, and assemble for each quarter of The Mystery of History, Volume IV.


Folderbooks offer a printable visual, hands-on project for students to show what they’ve learned. They provide a meaningful and creative way to help visual and kinesthetic learners grasp concepts, document information, and remember previous material. We suggest students build the Folderbook base at the start of each quarter (using file folders, glue, and clear packing tape) and add to it as they go. Directions for assembly are included.
