'A Ball About Me', is a fun, first week back to school, All About Me creative art activity.

This packet also includes the following:
'A Ball About Me' garland for students to decorate and display.
With 2 letters per US letter size page, this will make a large welcoming banner for the new classroom or bulletin board.
For early finishers and relaxation time:
Make a soccer ball bookmark
Explore pattern, shape and color with two additional abstract soccer ball doodle pages.
You will only need basic materials for this activity - paper and pens, string or pegs for the garland.
The photographed color example included in the pack uses a black ball point pen and marker pens to create a modern, illustrative style to appeal to grade 4's and above.
The finished artworks make a fabulous eye catching group wall display and also work well laminated and suspended from the ceiling. Watch them spin!
They also look great as personal journal or sketchbook covers for students.
Ideal for use as an icebreaker activity or as an art specific lesson.

‘This really caught my eye for a back to school activity to do with my Life Skills students 9-12 high school. It is so different than what I have seen and allows students to be creative.’
