I had my middles do a collage exercise. I wasn't sure if they would understand the concept but again, guilty of underestimating them. The idea is to create a collage in a designated, short amount of time, that represents you. Or represents how you see yourself anyway.
It was so neat and surprising to see what they came up with. They gave me a lot of insight into their hearts and minds. It was interesting to really take a look at how they view themselves. Some of their choices were surprisingly deep and others were predictably funny...and really honest.
