This is a 23-page packet that will have your students creating either a balloon or hot-air balloon that features their resolution or a resolution for the world. The packet has printables that allow you to make this a longer writing assignment, a brief one of a few sentences, or one in haiku form! It is completely up to you and the grade-level of the students before you. Either way, they are all great and can be adapted to fit the needs of your students.
This is an easy activity to do and will have your students writing, thinking, and crafting. The bulletin board comes out great! For these activities, to get the best results, you'll use pictures of your students. So bring that camera in! You won't be disappointed in using their pictures. Your board will be all the better. However, if you choose not to take their pictures, you can do all the activities without pictures.
I hope this works as well for you as it did for me.
