One way to use these Moon Bubbleheads is to allow kids to use their creativity to create unique characters. They just choose a phase of the moon, make up a unique name for it, place the head on the pop-up tabs and watch the Bubblehead bob up and down and all around! The creative stories to come will be MOONTASTIC!
Students choose one of the astronauts to research and then read and research that person. There is a notes page to help kids keep track of the information they learn as well. After the research is done, students can draw and color then place the head on the pop-up tabs and watch the Bubblehead bob up and down and all around! This is such a fun way to create a presentation for students.

We just finished a biography unit, in which we focused on African Americans, in honor of Black History Month. My students loved researching and creating these bubbleheads. I haven’t seen a cuter finished product in a long time.
Thanks so much!
