The purpose of this exercise is to give students practice working with details and similes, as well as to reinforce the ideas of focus and development. You'll need enough good objects to have one object (placed in an opaque bag) for each group. A few of the objects should have similar
characteristics, such as a knife and scissors. Each group will get a bag
with an object in it, and they will have to describe it so that the other group
can guess what the object is based on the descriptions.
