Back To School Bobbleheads (US) - a print and go activity for the first days back to school

Back To School Bobbleheads (US) - a print and go activity for the first days back to school

Back to School Bobbleheads is a fun activity to get to know your class during the first days back to school. It also provides opportunities to assess how well children can understand and follow verbal instructions - great for children with English as an additional language! The activity is in four parts: designing a head, designing a t-shirt, making a key and using their responses in the key to write about themselves. The answers your children give will create a design that is unique to them. When the activity has been completed, cut out both parts, glue together and string on bunting for an unusual classroom display. Or simply pin to a wall or notice board. The pack contains everything you need - just print and go!
