The Eyeballs Have It
I use the eye balls that you can get on the straws from Taco Bell at Halloween in several ways – after taking them out of the straw.
I cut construction paper or tag board to make a book. The students cut holes in the sheets the size of the eyes and glue the eyes on the inside [back] cover so they show [through] on each page. Then they write stories using the eyes as the center point to draw a picture around each set of eyes. I have found this is great for creative writing and idea generating for the lower level student.
I also paint numbers on the eyes and play math games with them and roll them as with marbles.
