I loved this project by another couple of teachers and had to share.
I was walking down the hall and saw all these turkeys.
I was enjoying them until I realized a few had copied their neighbors.
And then I looked closer.
They all were copies!  How could the teachers ever allow them to do that, let alone display these copies.

WEEEELLLLLLL, it seems I shouldn't jump to conclusions.

Each student colored and turkey and then wrote a descriptive paragraph about their image.  The other team of students received the written paragraph and were to recreate the image.  The two images side by side were the original and the copy.
How awesome is that.  I was thinking this could be an awesome listening, drawing skill practice.  Without the writing one student could look at the image and explain it to another.  They could each do a twenty minute drawing during one class period.

I think this might just have to go into "gonna do" pile for those odd days when the schedule is changed or kids come out of order or you have seen one group 3 times and the other groups once.... you know the kind.

p.s. Haylee's test results game out great.  Some changes to her diet will make the most difference.  Thank you all for your prayers.  I know they helped!

  1. This is an awesome idea! I'm going to spend some time thinking of how I might be able to get it to work at the secondary level. Definitely want to see the results if you try it!
