Show and Tell

Your students will chuckle with delight when reading this book about a boy who brings something very peculiar to class for show and tell. This "bubble solution" turns all of the students, including the teacher, into bubbles themselves! They then float across town and are part of a very wild adventure! Ask your students what it might be like to float across the sky and see everything below them. Have them write their creative stories about their new adventures. Once the stories are completed, create real models of children in your class as "bubbles." Blow up small water balloons and tie. Next, have your students paper machet the balloons. Once they are dry (overnight), pop the balloon inside and paint the balloon. You will want your "people balloons" to look similar to the ones in the book. If you have small pictures of the children, have them cut out their heads and glue to the front of the balloons. (If not, they can just draw a picture of their head and glue on.) Then have your students color and cut out legs and arms to attach to the balloon. Tie a piece of fishing line to the tops and hang down at varying lengths from the ceiling. They will look really great by their creative essays!
