Review 2017, set goals and make resolutions for 2018 with this construction, art and writing activity.
Ideal for use as a first week back activity or as an art specific lesson with templates to use for 2018 and 2019

Considerations and how to use this activity:
Encourage students to move beyond words, and 'draw their answers'
Consider the space around the images they draw
How do the 9 images look collectively?
Is there an emerging theme or style or color?
What colors do we associate with words?
eg fireworks: red, orange, yellow
How do students feel about the first week back to school?
It’s OK to express dislikes as well as likes, our fears along with our hopes
Photographed examples and assembly instructions are included.
The completed art-phones work well pegged up collectively as a classroom garland or can decorate a wall, door or bulletin board.
