    I got this out of Mailbox magazine Aug 2005. I have the questions, but need the template for the circles. I can't find the original. TIA!

    I'm curious

    I've never heard of this before. Could you please explain what this is and how it works?

    Really sounds interesting!

    Oh! What age level would this be for?

    I use it with my fifth graders.

    There are 20 questions. Each answer goes into the center of a triangle that is in the middle of a circle. You cut out the circles, fold on the triangles and then glue the flaps together. It forms a sphere when you are done.

    It's pretty hard to explain. Sorry if it isn't clear.

    I've used it the last 3 years - I reproduce the circles on colored construction paper. It takes a while to do, but makes a great display for open house - we have open house the afternoon of the first day of school. Plus it helps me to get to know the kids; they all know each other already unless they are new to the school (small district).
    The questions are pretty generic - What is your favorite book, when is your birthday, etc.

    Sounds interesting - is there a website or book to look more into it?

    No, it was in an old Mailbox magazine. I used to be able to get into their archive of all past issues, but they changed things up and I can only see about a year's worth.

    Do you still need this? It didn't make it to my To Do list so I forgot to get it out on Monday. Send me a PM with your email and I'll get it to you.

    Is there any way someone could post it on this site? Or at least PM the file to us? This sounds like a great activity.

    I can get it out this weekend to those that still have requests. I can't attach to PMs though so you need to send me your email.

    I have it. I had to take it off my site when Mailbox wrote me to take all their stuff off. PM me if you still need it.

    We worked on them today. They are very complicated and took us three hours. But we did it! I was so proud of the kids.

    Are the personality spheres considered polyhedrons or icosahedrons?

    If not, what shape are they?

    Ok-I'm going to drag this out again this year! I can't post it to a website because of copyright infringement, but I'm sure I could e-mail it. PM your e-mail address and I'll send it to you.

    The file is a PDF and contains directions, questions and the template.

    Help !! Personality sphere template needed!

    Hi all,

    Does anyone have the peronality sphere template that they would be willing to share? I was going through my file cabinet and I found the questions but not the template. I love to do the personality spheres with the kids the first week of school but I don't have the template. If anyone would be willing to share I would be very very grateful!

    I did this once. It was hard for the kids. But to give them a head start I cut out the circles using my scrapbooking tools and drew the triangle lines on each circle. The hardest part was getting the glue to stick while the kids were working on other parts.
