This brief history of the celebration of the New Years Eve Ball Drop worksheet and activity packet is a great resource for that first day back from the holiday break. The reading comprehension sheet discusses the history of the first ball drop, some of the redesigns the ball has gone through, talks about the two years the ball did not drop, and tells about design facts such as how heavy the 2018 ball was and how many crystals it was made of. Probably best suite for fourth grade and up as it has many details. I hope you find this as interesting to read as I found it to be while researching it.
There are two other activities in this packet- One create a word appropriate for grades 2 and up as well as a journal entry page.
Blessings and Happy NEW YEAR!!!
