These lessons give students an opportunity to be very creative and use language along with their thinking skills.
Here is a ppt and video to use with the book "It's not a stick" Delightful concept. Just bring some sticks to class and get the students talking, see what they come up with!
Another great way to do this is use "It's not a Box" - another delightful book from the same author. Challenge your students - in groups give them a box and see what ideas they come up with!
Also, this video is so cute! Wonderful. Play and pause and ask students - "It's not a box. What is it?"
