They had a suggestion from the Homeschool Share lapbook to look at different monkey species around the world so I got on google images and printed out some pictures from the suggestions they had and we printed them on cardstock and did a little geography lesson : )

A great bible verse to go along with the book perfectly : ) “A fool gives full vent to his anger…” AND a cute How much is it worth lapbook project

Amelia loved this game which ended up a subtraction lesson where you sing a song about monkey’s in a tree and they get taken out and leaves… however many monkeys in a tree : )
