Book Punch

This website provides activities for exploring literature. There are currently about 40 titles available recommended for grades 3-9. The activities are interactive writing prompts that guide the student through the writing process.

In the Hands of a Child

This is a company that publishes lapbook materials on a wide variety of subjects. They are also available in printed and ebook format (including a "type it in" option, which my son loved since he didn't have to write!) You can even purchase a kit w/ the foldables already printed on colored paper.

A note about religious content: The writers/publishers are Christian, and they have a line of Bible study lapbooks. But I was never bothered by any religious content in the history/science units I purchased from them.

These are also available through the CurrClick website.
