This 3D Hot Air Balloon is not only a fun writing and art activity for your students, but also looks super cute hanging up in your classroom for Back to School or Open House! It would also be a great activity paired with a read aloud or literacy lesson. Everyone will especially love the personal touch of the picture of each child “riding” in the basket!
This download comes complete with a template for an outside color border of the hot air balloon, as well as the hot air balloon templates for students to write on and illustrate. You can choose from primary dotted writing lines, regular writing lines, or no lines to meet the needs of your students and grade level.
The 4 sides of the balloon will showcase that your class is really “Going Places!”
Each side of the balloon has a different heading:
[Student example: “I want to be a better reader and score a goal on my soccer
-When I Grow Up…
[Student example: “When I grow up I want to be a chef.”]
-How I’ll Get There…
[Student example: “I will read every night before bed and listen to my coach at
soccer practice. I am going to practice cooking with my mom.”
[Students may draw & color an illustration of themselves achieving their goals.]
A materials list and an easy step-by-step assembly guide with photos are included.
