I do a project with my 11th graders, I call it Morphisms, similar to what
Judy has done. I write down names of people, place, things on little pieces
of paper and throw them into 2 hats (A&B). Students pick one from A and one
from B...A morphs into B. They find the objects/items that they have to draw
and have to do an exact drawing of the 2. Then the morphing happens. It's
one of the ways that I bring them to abstracting. They do the morphims on 8
4x6 cards and then glue them onto long cardboard strips so you can easily
view the morphing. They love it and it's amazing to see their creativity.
