Activity #3: “A Ball For You”

To help further the understanding of the skill of joining in, students create large paint-washed balls displaying more ideas of how to appropriately join in. This activity is to be completed in pairs to encourage cooperation.

Materials:

  • Template of large ball (provided)
  • Five different paint colours
  • Paint brushes
  • Thick black felt pen
  • Scissors

Teacher Preparation:

  • Print enough ball templates for each pair of students.

 

Step by Step

Step One: Provide each pair of students with the ball template.

Step Two: Students work together, taking turns painting each of the five sections a different colour.

Step Three: Once dry, students outline the dividing lines with thick, black felt pen.

Step Four: Students cut out the large ball, following the thick black line around the circumference of the ball.

Step Five: Have students refer to the brainstormed list of ‘ways of joining in’ and have them print five different ways of joining in, one in each area.

 

End Product:

Colourful balls created by the students working together, each with ideas of how to join in appropriately.

  • Optional: This activity can also be completed so that each student creates their own ball.

Fun with Fin:

Complete the same activity, only instead of a ball, use the hockey puck template provided. Display it on the bulletin board beside Fin and the student balls.
