Well, I am probably showing my age here, but if you can get a hold of a
supply of slide mounts, blank or with film intact, the kids will enjoy
making their own slide shows.
Another possibility for a short term lesson is silhouette puppets that
can be projected on to a regular movie screen.
As an extension to a Surrealism lesson, the children can manipulate two
separate images (from magazines) that are incongruent in size relationship.
For instance, a picture of a large iron travelling over a bridge. My
students love creating and writing about these montage images. For details
of these lessons, contact me off list if you are interested. I stand accused
by some on this list of providing "canned cookie cutter" lessons.
