Then the teams completed little cards about their jumping jack and invented a life for him/her (see the worksheet below).
Each member of the team was then assigned one of the cards to create a written composition about their jumping jack. Finally, the groups made an oral presentation about their creature to the rest of the class.
I guess it is not necessary to mention, that I was quite in awe of the amazing, funny and witty presentations. This activity showed me, yet again, the wonders creativity works in a classroom. I hope you like it!
