For #2, what if you used that bright yellow caution tape? Home Depot carries it. Perhaps there's a kind that doesn't say "caution." then you could just wrap away.

        For some of us, that ringing of the bell is just around the
        corner. My mind is spinning trying to come up with ideas.
        Do you have any you want to add to the list below. I am trying
        to come up with interactive activities for students when it
        comes to learning and retaining the elements and principls.
        1. Line - Divide students into groups of five , Give each
        student one of the directions of line (horizontal, vertical,
        ziz-zag, curved, and diagonal. Then each student plays out the
        type of line as best as they can . Others then ask questions
        about how they may feel. Such as, laying down on top of table
        would represent a horizontal line- now what do you think that
        student who is laying down is going to do -hello- close their
        eyes and possible go to sleep -therefor feeling restful- am I on
        the right track here.
        2. Or - and havent finished the thought process on this - you
        know that yarn art they do in math on posterboard with diagonal
        lines (brain shortage here( what if you went out side, placed
        the students in a position in which you would find the holes on
        that posterboard, and had one student give the end of yarn to a
        student to begin, then that student would move from student to
        student to create a large yard art display (yard art from judy
        this morning). If some type of material was used that was
        stiff, such as wire, then you could stake each point into the
        ground and have yard art.
        Okay, am I going crazy with these thoughts or what?
