story of the world: volume 2 lapbook


The following lapbook components are a completion of the wonderful lapbook components that Alia started. Due to circumstances out of her control, she was unable to complete Volume 2. I offered to complete them for her and make them available here on my blog for a suggested donation of $3.

I've included the pictures of our lapbook. We decided to make a castle to hold all of our SOTW chapter elements. This is two file folders glued back to back. I spray painted the file folders gray--it took four coats as I was trying to cover a purple file folder. I would recommend spraying the regular manilla colored file folder. I think the colored ones have a slight finish on them that made it hard for the paint to adhere. I let my girls each choose a "castle door" from google images and we printed it on white paper and glued it to our lapbook. The knights are stickers. The letters came from my trusty pile of scrapbook goodies.

To download The Story of the World Volume 2 components for chapters 1-23, go HERE. I hope you and your children enjoy lapbooking together! Thanks for stopping by!

Story of the World Volume 2 Chapters 24-42

Many hours went into this project. As this is only half of the book, I'm asking for a suggested donation of $3. All donations received will go towards the ministry my husband and I have of sending couples to a week long marriage retreat at The JH Ranch. Blessings to you!

Feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you love about lapbooking! If you have a specific question, feel free to email me at johnstonhouse at gmail dot com.

Brenda Johnston said...

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!

I am about to START SOTW Vol. 2, and I was getting stressed! (I gather EVERYTHING before starting, so I don't lose steam when I have to go and find something.)

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart!

We love lapbooking, but I have NO CLUE how to make the components like you have.

Teary eyed, I attempt to leave a comment that reflects my awe at the body of Christ! When one part of the body is hurting, another comes to its rescue.

You are a beautiful representation of the body! Ironically, we just arrived on our Story of the World journey, on Chapter 24 of volume two, and are very happy to visualize the completed lapbook. We are new to lapbooking and homeschooling. We love what you have done! Hopefully, we can continue this lapbook thread with the remaining volumes!

THANK YOU!

I am looking for Vol 2 the first chapters, her site is shut down. Any suggestions.

Richard Murphy said...

Hello I was interested in doing the Story of the World Volume 2 lap book. I will need all the chapters 1-42. I tried to access the Chapter1-23 it said the blog was removed. I was able to view 24-42. They look fabulous. Do I pay $3.00 for the first 1-23 and an additional $3.00 for the 24-42? Thanks. I just found story of the world and I am very excited to share it with my son.
Thanks and God Bless

Thanks for bringing it to my attention that Alia's blog is shut down--such a bummer! She had so many great resources for SOTW. I have the files to the first half of SOTW 2 and have uploaded them--see the link above. For some reason she never did a lapbook element for chapter 17. I will do that at some point and add it to the downloaded files. I am busy for the next few weeks, so no promises of when that will be. I have it on my to-do list. It won't look the same as hers did as I have no idea where she picked up the art for her lapbook elements. Melissa--as to a donation, just donate for the second half as I wouldn't feel right taking money for the first half which I didn't create. Thank you so much for your contribution! Blessings!

Mama said...

Help! I cannot seem to access the file for the second half of the lapbook. It just gives me an error message. Any suggestions you could give me would be greatly appreciated!!

charlie Clemmer said...

Hi, Brenda: Your work is such an inspiration - love your school room and your articles! Tried to link through to SOTW 1 and SOTW 2 but Dropbox says the files don't exist.
Many thanks! paulaclemmer@yahoo.com

Jen said...

Hi Brenda. Thanks so much for all your work on this. I cannot seem to download the lapbook for SOTW 2. I am sure I'm just doing something wrong! JLynn1347@gmail.com

Brenda Johnston said...

Sorry it's not working. Trying to figure out what the problem is. Keep checking back. I may have to have a friend help me, but I will get it up again soon. Computers--love 'em and hate 'em! : )

Brenda Johnston said...

Just got the second half of SOTW 2 working. It was an issue with Dropbox. Working on SOTW 1 and the first half of SOTW 2. Because I didn't create these and they were saved as individual files, I have to wait on a friend to help me--no idea what to do! Thanks for your patience.

Brenda Johnston said...

All links are now working! :)

Kelly Meirik said...

THANK YOU! seriously from the bottom of my heart! I thought I lost this lapbook and was mourning my younger kids not doing it! I donated to your "tip jar," thank you, so cute! It's a small price to pay for what an awesome resource this is! My son and I have loved this as a supplement to SOTW. Bless you!

George Green said...

This is amazing! We are almost done with SOW3, will you be doing one for SOW4?
