Get an overhead projector. Copy an animal onto a transparent sheet. While
asking them to name the shape of the head draw it with a marker on a
transparent sheet on top. When the animal has been described totally take
away the Xeroxed animal print and you should be left with nothing but
shapes.
Lucky you to teach in a museum. I was in the Brooklyn museum and loved the
situation. Lisa
