Celebrate Fall and Thanksgiving
with this easy to use, colorful and imaginative 'Fall Ball' art and writing activity.
The pack also contains a large garland for students to make and bookmarks for early finishers.
This soccer ball inspired theme invites children to respond to prompts in a personal, imaginative way using doodles, mark making, graffiti style lettering and imagery.
This style of project often engages boys / students who may be fearful of expressing themselves creatively or those who show little interest in art and writing.
The 'art ball' has prompts for 16 seasonal sketches, including the following:
pumpkin pie, toadstool, sleeping fox, acorns, cranberries, apples, leaves
The 'word ball' has prompts for 16 topical answers and ideas, including:
name 5 Fall colors,
a friend/relative/place/gift or skill I am thankful for
name a hibernating animal
name a migrating bird
favorite Fall activity
You will only need basic materials for this activity - paper and pens, string or pegs for the garland.
The finished balls 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.
In the pack you will find:
Instructions for use
Color examples of the art ball and word ball
Outline ball templates
'A Thank-Fall Ball' Garland (2 letters per page)
I hope you have fun!
