An Overview of the 20th Century Lapbook with Study Guide


56 pages for grades 3rd-7th

From horse and buggy to high-powered cars and air born transportation, the 20th century is just bubbling with excitement. It was a time of U.S. involvement in several major wars. We have gone from a time of great depression to a time of excessiveness and leisure. Men have walked on the moon and computers have become a necessary way of life.

This lapbook is designed to take your child from the beginning of the century through the end. Each booklet in the lapbook has a study guide that provides lots of useful and interesting information about the topic being studied. The lapbook booklets and study guides include lots of actual photos of events and people.

Includes graphic and color coded directions on how to construct your file folders into a lapbook, how to put together each booklet and where to put them in your lapbook. This lapbook is 3 folders big!

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
