Today’s Assignment:

1. Have your students create a work of art.

2. Assign each finished work a number.

3. Exhibit the art in the classroom.

4. Have the students draw a number and write a short story about the piece of art that has been assigned that number.

5. Read the stories to the class (or have the students read them.)

6. Have them guess which piece of art they are associated with.
