Geometry lapbook / notebook ideas

My kids have recently fallen in love with lapbooks, and have done several science & history related ones. I got to thinking, there aren't that many MATH lapbooks available... but there IS one math topic that suits lapbooking very well, and that is GEOMETRY.

Now, while I don't actually have a geometry lapbook for you, I found some places where you can get one:

Geometry Lapbook at Homeschool Bin - this seems to be a completely free download (in several parts).

Adventures of  Third Grade Teacher is selling a geometry lapbook for $3.

Then, if you feel a lapbook (a foldable) is too extensive a project, here's a simpler one: a geometry notebook or journal.

This simply means that for each new TERM in the geometry curriculum or chapter, the student explains that term and draws the corresponding figure, using 1-2 blank pages.

In the end, the student will have his/her very own geometry book to keep and show around!

Here's one parent's example of doing a geometry lapbook project (with pictures). I noticed she used Math Mammoth Early Geometry for a text. I feel Geometry 1 book will suit notebooking or journaling even better, as it covers more concepts.
