I was doing a "literal animal" project with my 6th grade boys class. The
assignment was to illustrate a fantasy creature using the literal meaning of
the word. For example "ladybut" could look like a woman with 6 legs, wings,
etc. or "bullfrog" could look like a frog with a bulls tail and horns. We
started to brainstorm and list possibilities on the board. They came up with
great ideas ( angelfish, horsefly, swordfish, ) and then they hit me with
some whoppers....spermwhale, mountain boobie, cockroach, pussycat. That's 6th
grade boys!!!
