A Bloom Ball (pelota de Bloom) is a type of book report that uses Bloom’s taxonomy to promote higher level thinking. Students create a dodecahedron (a 12 sided 3-dimensional shape). I use this project as a cumulative book report at the end of a novel study. I have used this with 4th and 5th graders, but I believe it would be appropriate for grades 3-6.
I have included:
- Student directions in Spanish that includes 12 different tasks for students to complete.
- Teacher directions for assembly in English with photos
- A template for the sides of the Bloom Ball
