A Bloom Ball is a 3D project that challenges students to use all of the levels of Bloom's taxonomy. My Smarties L-O-V-E-D this project! They had so much fun making each section and talking to each other about favorite parts, character traits, and themes.
The Bloom Ball is a series of 12 circles. Students create the ball by writing 12 different activities based on the novel. The questions ask students to discuss the setting, character traits, symbolism, theme, make connections between the book and other text, draw pictures, and look critically at vocabulary. You can make the sections whatever you need them to be, and on what ever topic your students are studying. They can be fiction or nonfiction, author study, biography, you name it. This project is so versatile. Take a look at the pictures below of my student projects, and consider adding this to your "TO-DO LIST" for the next year.
