This book was made by a first grader while working through The Story of the World, volume 1 by Susan Wise Bauer. Follow this link for a complete listing of mini-books in this lapbook, correlated to SOTW.
The Cover: right hand strip says "Ancient Egypt" in transliterated hieroglyphics, with my student's name in the cartouche. The large picture is from an old National Geographic.
Blue extension (clockwise):
Tri-fold shape-book on the three Kingdoms of Ancient Egypt.
Simple fold on the Nile
Pizza book on Egyptian deities
Tetrahedron book on the Great Pyramid
The red extension is attached with a paper hinge, and is on famous Pharaohs.
Red extension open-more famous Pharaohs.
Center panel: Bible Heroes in Egypt (red). King Tut's tomb (blue).
Right: Magazine photo in page protector secured by a paper hinge to the right fold seam.
If the magazine photo is turned on its hinge toward the center of the book, you can see a tri-fold on mummies.
Back cover (not shown) has a photo of the Saqqara pyramid
and an About the Author section that includes a photo of
the author in an Egyptian head covering.
