Everybody's an artist
Teacher has descriptions of people. You group the students into teams and choose one student from each team to come to the board and draw someone you describe. I like to make the descriptions very funny, like a fat man with one eye, a big nose, long ears.....you get the picture. I read the descriptions only twice, and make them as complex or as simple as my class can handle. I use this often in business English classes to loosen people up. Works great with kids too of course. The team cannot write down the description so you are engaging their short term memory. You get some absolutley hilarious results. If the picture is lacking any one thing, no points, has to be complete.
Hope this is as fun for you as it is for me
