Today I gave my class a creative writing exercise. The topic in the book was kind of lame: Pretend you are one of the following (car, toy, watch, Walkman) and describe what you are like. But the kids were really imaginative with their answers.

They all picked car. And with waving hands, bursts of verbal expanation, and drawing of pictures, they asked me how to say "G.P.S.," "heat-seeking missile," "rocket launcher," "space station" and "guillotine."

Cool cars, huh?
