I actually teach K-8 but these examples could definitely apply to my
7th and 8th graders. In fact, I did a very similar project with linear
perspective that you described. I think I'm realizing that I'm
following Bloom's Taxonomy. Thanks for the examples - I think that I
have a firm handle on it now and that it may have been some
miscommunication on what Bloom's Taxonomy is that lead to my confusion.
