Then I thought, "wouldn't it be fun to ask other MFL teachers if they wanted to complete the activity with 1 (or more) of their classes. If they tweet or email their best sketch to me, I can create a photo collage of the sketches or post photos of their sketches."
I am going to do this activity with all of my Spanish classes this week. I'll probably buy a small prize for the sketch with the most points and/or the best sketch for each class to provide extra motivation for them to concentrate while drawing.
Update: Below are links to two google slides presentations to use with your class:
1. Presentation from 2014 made by Elena Lopez
2. Presentation from 2015 made by Ashley Soriano
Are you interested in joining in?
1. Complete this activity this week with 1 (or more) of your language classes in your Target Language. Update: @lopezelena saw the tweets about the activity and then created and shared this Google Presentation of the activity - ready to go for Spanish teachers. Thanks Elena.
2. TWEET the best sketch(es) with the hashtag #platesketch or email the sketch(es) to me by Friday afternoon, December 19.
I'll make a collage or use another way to share the sketches on my blog and Twitter.
HERE is the link to the document I shared on Twitter. Let the fun begin!

After Christmas I discovered that there were many other #platesketch tweets that I had missed, so I uploaded a second book. Click HERE to view the second book.
