In FACS we are doing a short Child Development unit. And today we did a short imagination activity. Students drew a picture of an imaginary creature in the packet. Then they partnered up with someone else in the class and verbally described their creature (without letting their partner see the original) to their partner to draw. It was so much fun to listen to them try to give directions to their partner. Some of the pictures turned out really close, and others... didn't. It was a great object lesson on how sometimes, kids hear something different than what parents say. Or rather, they hear what they want to hear. :-) It created a great discussion.
