4 Words, Teen class

This was a thoughtful project. The students wrote 5 adjectives on a small piece of paper and put them in a hat/box. Then we mixed them up and they each took turns picking one till they were all gone. They could throw one word away which would leave them with 4. They had 4, 5x7 inch wooden raised panels to paint what each word might feel like in an image... but the catch was to use a common theme. We had weather, rain, lightbulbs, silhouettes and arrows... I will post them as they finish but here is the beginning.  Some of the words were stormy, loud, frenzy, luminous, hopeful, peaceful, mundane, utopian... Yes, this was a challenge with some great ideas in the end.
