This could be done at any time, but I had my students do this activity for Dr. Seuss week! I had my students write a rough draft before writing on this final copy, but you don't have to do that. Copy the writing part on white paper, and the basket part on brown paper. I copied, cut, and glued this part together ahead of time. I got pretty scrapbook paper and copied the balloon part template onto the pretty paper. I took pictures of all of my students and had them do a fun pose as if they were really on a hot air balloon, and cut them out right against their body, leaving no background. You will also need string to attach the balloon to the basket. The students were so excited to write about what they wanted to be when they grow up, looking into the future! Of course we read 'Oh, the Places You'll Go' prior to the activity. I also laminated them after they were displayed for a while as a keepsake for their parents! Enjoy!
