Draw What You Hear

Look at a simple picture and describe it to your class. The picture should be lines and simple shapes that can be easily described - you may just want to draw something rather than looking for a picture. You will describe the picture to your kids using directional words such as "straight down," "upper right," and "southwest." See how close they can draw it based on your instructions.
