More than a simple ball, Parts of a Story Thumball provides a question prompt and a sentence starter to reinforce the elements of a plot, setting, character, and more. Printed on each panel of the Thumball is a word, graphic, photo, or logo relating to a specific subject. Toss it in your hands and read what is written on the panel beneath your thumb. Answer for yourself or ask another player the question. For example, If your thumb lands on “Where does the story take place?” you could answer “In a castle.”Increase motivation, encourage cooperation and help students retain facts. Educational and entertaining, these soccer-style balls are soft, safe, and easy to toss and catch.
Includes: 1 multi-colored 4″ ball with 12 panels
