{July 27, 2009}   Heal the World

A very nice song by Michael Jackson, Heal the World, and different activities to foster students’ creativity*:
– write a biography
– write an essay on facial surgery
– discuss the pros and cons of being famous
– make a poster showing the meaning of the song
– draw a picture depicting what “Heal the World” means to you

Then, you can widen your topic and add some vocabulary on space and ecology! Students round the age of 12 love working on this topics!

Can you think of any other creative activity?

*I must admit I’m kind of tired of fill in the gaps activities, not only they are repetitive and not original, but also students know the songs we choose most of times – or they can easily predict the missing words. Creative activities do not only allow students to focus on a topic but they also help students develop their creative thinking abilities.
