I am not sure of your age levels, but when I taught the lower grades, one
of the games the kids loved was twister. I took an old twister game,
covered the color spots on the mat with small reproductions of portraits,
landscapes, still lifes and sculptures. (Just major categories that you
have studied with the group- could be time periods, styles, cultures,
whatever) Then I changed the spinner by using the words for the main
categories. Students were divided into two teams and took turns competing
for points. So I could use the mat over and over, I would simply tape the
pictures down to the mat and use a very large sheet of clear heavy duty
plastic to lay over it. You can tape the edges so it doesn't move. It was
a blast. Now I have 7th graders- other issues if I use that game....
