Which ball is bigger, basketball or soccer? Tennis or baseball? Measure and compare sizes and shapes of balls used in classmates’ favorite sports.
Collect various sports balls. Find balls used in games played around the world (cricket, petanque, boules, bocce, croquet) as well as your favorites. Look at the different textures, stitching, lacing, and shapes of the balls. What characteristics make each ball unique? How do these features affect the game?
Work in teams to measure the balls’ heights. Here’s one way to make a chart to show how their sizes compare.
On posterboard, measure and mark even intervals (inches and millimeters) with a Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencil. Draw horizontal lines and label each line. If you need to correct, just erase.
Draw at least five sports balls on white paper in their actual sizes. Shape Crayola Model Magic into the same sizes and 2-D shapes as your drawings. To get the ball color you want, knead Model Magic with Crayola Washable Gel Marker color. Add details such as laces, stitches, or texture. Air-dry the balls overnight.
With Crayola School Glue, attach the balls to the graph. Compare their sizes and shapes with those that other students represented.
