Kindergarten Classroom -
Students were learning about how who we are leads to different ways of communicating. He had "aliens" created ahead of time with missing body parts necessary for communication in a colorful powerpoint. eg an alien without a mouth or an alien without ears, or an alien without eyes. Students had to determine how these individuals would communicate. Next they tied this in to themselves answering different questions like "how would you communicate with someone who speaks a different language?" Later they wrote emails the teacher sent :) which were "translated" by his machine so the aliens could understand the student.
