it sounds as though you and your studtents all had fun. I'd love to hear more about your students poems and songs. Suddenly I find myself trying to write new words to common melodies in order to help my student make connections.

        I'm a first year middle school teacher and wanted to thank you for all the
        help you have given me. Instead of giving a teacher presentation on MC
        Escher, my students researched, collaborated, and selected how they were
        going to present the information by way of song, poem, game show, interview.
          Poems and songs had to be written on larger sheets, they had to memorize
        their one or two lines they were going to say in the game show/poem/song.
        They had to use overheads provided. We explored MC Escher, Moorish tiles,
        and Roman Mosaics in two days. They graded their group, themselves, and
        completed a KWL. During closure they came up with one question for the
        class (treat for individual who answered correctly). It was very intense.
        The poems and game cards grace the windows along with the student's title
        "Art Attack."
