We have completed our first Brownie try-it lapbook --Birds. Girlie learned a lot about them, which I guess is the point of try-its. Sometimes we rush though the activities but I am not that concerned about it since she loves to go back through the lapbooks and reread them. I figure that helps cement the knowledge.
Anyway with the first brownie lapbook completed under our belts I have started to put together resources and activities for the next lapbook- First Aid.
Here are the requirements for the try-it. http://store.gscsnj.org/store/product/14662/FIRST-AIDE-TRY-IT/
Instead of re-inventing the wheel I wanted to see what minit books I could find to fit the requirements of this try-it for free online. I was surprised to find so many of them.
Here is the list of links to what either meets the requirements or is a nice addition to flesh out the unit.

http://www.homeschoolshare.com/docs54367/petunia/community.pdf glue in the pictures of who would use first aid
Be prepared isn't a requirement but I think it is a good expansion to flesh out the unit, also a good thing to get the little minds working if you plan on taking your kids camping.
The Emergency Wheel teaches about what to do in an emergency so even though it is not a requirement I think it is important.
For the sprain Don't forget R.I.C.E. Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate
The only things not covered by all the wonderful free minit books I found is care for shock and burns and also what things to be aware of in certain weather. To that end I added my own minit books to the list above so that these topics would be covered.
My plan is to work on this book with Girlie over the next little while. I'll post pictures when we are done.
