Battle of Badr Lapbook

15 Aug

This was a project Ibraheem (8) completed just before summer. I wanted to share this here,remembering the great event in our history in this month of mercy. Insha-Allah I hope it will benefit others as well.

The main reference for this project was The Sealed Nectar by Saifur Rahman al-Mubarakpuri. You can access the English version here. I have the book Alhamdulillah. It has all of the duas and Quranic verses in Arabic as well.

Cover page

Cover Battle of Badr

Inside layout – 3 flaps

This lapbook was made by gluing one flap of a file folder onto another. You will end up with three letter sized flaps. Pictured above is the inside of the lapbook. Below are the individual parts and the corresponding files that we used to create them.

This is a simple flap style presentation that has all the important facts of the Battle of Badr.

Inside the trade caravan – story of the cause of the Battle of Badr

This is the template for this part of the lapbook – Cause of Battle of Badr. My son wrote the incident out as a copy work. The printout could be used instead.

Two more flap books

Inside – Face Off at the Battle of Badr outlining who took on who and representing which side.

Inside – Dua of Rasulullah during the battle

This dua was from The Sealed Nectar book.

Tab book outlining the different forms of help that came from Allah during the battle

We used the tab book template from here to create this book. Again all of this information is in the Sealed Nectar.

We categorized the help into four; rain, fear, angels and sandstorm. For each category we pasted the related verse and wrote a short narration of the happenings.

Rain – verse 11, Surah Al-Anfal

Fear – verse 12, Surah Al-Anfal

Angels – verse 9, Surah Al-Anfal

Sandstorm – verse 17, Surah Al-Anfal

Story of two young sahabas killing Abu Jahl

This is just a print out of the story of Muaz Ibn Ufra and Muaz Ibn Amr killing Abu Jahl. We made in into a sort of a pull out and housed it in a CD sleeve. You can print this out here – Killing of Abu Jahl.

Outcome of battle

This again is just a simple flap style presentation.

Back flap of the lapbook

This is the back flap of the lapbook showing the significance of the Battle of Badr. The template for this is here – Importance of Badr

    As salaam alaikum Umm Sayang,

    Nice, maashaa Allah. This is a lot of writing for an eight year old. Does he enjoy doing the lapbooks?

    Waalaikum Salaam Umm Tafari.
    We did this over a few days. To be honest, I prepare all the templates and plan the layout of any lapbook we have done so far. This is so that he is kept interested by filling in the details rather than building the book itself. This is why I share my templates over here, it’ll be easier for other parents Insha-Allah.
