Nathanael has been keen for a while to do a project on Ships and Sailors, so over the summer he has spent time working on it. He has read various non-fiction and fiction books on the subject.
|Inside lapbook with flaps down. On the left are some mini books Nathanael made on Noah's Ark and the Titanic. On the right is a poem he wrote, inspired by J. M. W Turner's painting the Fighting Temeraire.|
The Ship's Death
Bang! Blistering cannons
Bite holes in ships
In Trafalgar's battle.
Now the saddest day of all
It's being led away
To its death today.
Poor fighting Temeraire.
|Inside the lapbook a labelled drawing of a Galleon, some sentences about Viking Ships and drawings of the front covers of Christopher Columbus and Treasure Island books he read.|
Together we read a lot of books on this subject, so I have included the links to the books I got from Amazon, in case it is useful to anyone.
