Resource: tons of tiny suggestions

Good things come in small packages, and with them, we’ve got a great collection of tiny prompts to get your students thinking about the little things. If you want even more requests, you can find 50 more in the giveaway below.

Here are four mini-exercises for which you can use small pointers:

  • Mime exercise: Have students mime picking up a small item, interacting with it, and handing it to the student next to them.
  • Playwriting exercise: Write a one-page scene, for two people, that must include a tiny element somewhere in the plot.
  • Enhancement Exercise 1: You open a treasure chest to find a multitude of tiny objects.
  • Enhancement Exercise 2: In a science lab, your shrink ray turns and makes a small giant object.
