Bloom Ball Reports

A Bloom Ball report is based on Blooms Taxonomy that encourages higher level thinking. Your students will have fun as they work together to write, draw, cut out and glue the edges of the circles together for these colorful reports. They make wonderful classroom displays and you'll be tempted to display them all year long! Some of my students donate them to me at the end of the year and I use them as examples for my next year's class!

Included in this 17 page packet are: templates in color and black and white, teacher and student instructions, templates in two different sizes, and more.
This packet has instructions for a fiction book report and a biographical report students create about themselves.

Read the comments written by teachers who have purchased this packet! These activities are currently being used by students in grades 4 - 11 and are easily modified to accommodate a wide range of readers. High school teachers have contacted me and said that they used them with their students for science, ELA and social studies projects.
