What excites young imaginations? What intrigues them, or appeals to them? Well...who knows? This activity offers kids a number of options to choose from. They will draw a picture taken from whatever part of their imagination is sparked by a wide range of captions I offer. This is a 'flipping around' of an activity they often do as budding storytellers:
In many English/Language Arts classes, teachers show the students the artwork in “The Mysteries of Harris Burdick”. Students are given a picture with a caption, and they must write a story around what they think is going on in the picture.
Now let’s flip that around: Give your young artists a caption, and have them draw a picture that they believe relates to that passage. The learner must find a away of incorporating each part of the passage.
