How to Make Your Jellyfish Lapbook

First, take an A4 document wallet. Fold it out and cut off the flaps that stop papers from falling out. This will give you a big piece of card. Fold the edges into the middle so that they meet in the centre.

Choose a picture of jellyfish to put on the cover of your lapbook and make a bold title. You might need cut your picture down the middle to open your book.
