Anyone else love foldables? I do, I do, I do!
One of my favorite ways to use foldables is to pack the entire unit into one foldable. We then save them for the end of the year when we review. I hand them all of their foldables and the students are always amazed at how much work they have done and how much they have learned.
I choose the tabs based on our state standards and what I need to be sure to cover. It helps me stay focused on the standards, while giving great organization to the kiddos!

I also like to use the simple tri-fold foldables for smaller amounts of information.
Below we used the tri-fold foldables for the inner and outer planets, as well as for animal adaptations. I just love how much students learn from illustrating and captioning. These tie in well with our text features lesson, as well.
