Notebooking Examples & Freebies

notebooking splash page

We love notebooking in our house. It’s easier to plan and set up than lapbooking, and it can be used with virtually any subject.

When we started moving towards unschooling, I was pretty sure that notebooking would fade out of our home. To my surprise, the girls still enjoy having a notebooking page to doodle, draw, and jot down thoughts on while we read and explore topics. They find it helpful to focus, listen, and interact with the information.

It also makes a pretty impressive portfolio for our records. We can flip through our binders and immediately see what the girls read, heard, and understood.

Notebooking History

Most of our notebooking pages are about history. I also like to make notebooking printables about history because you can find many public domain images to adorn the pages. Each of these units includes free notebooking pages for you to download:
