Graffiti writing

Student get into a group of four. They then choose a side and write about what is in the middle. In this sample, it is math and they need to draw or write something to do with that number.

Top, middle, bottom

This activity as done for positional words, top, middle and bottom.  The students got into partners and then made eyes, nose and mouth.  When they were done they put it together and it was a funny face.
