Try having them draw in sketchbooks or on paper to open ended statements
like "What is your favorite flower arrangement?" or "If you were the first
person to land on Mars what would it look like?". A great resource is the
anti-coloring book for ideas.

Does anyone have any good ideas/handouts for middle schoolers who finish
projects early? I hate to have them just draw in their sketchbook
because they often have no idea what to draw. I have a couple of
handouts but need a lot more. Any ideas? (I teach 6th and 7th grade).
