Whole Group Images
Invite students stand in a circle. Choose one of the settings they identified during Images from a Hat. Ask: "What is another object/animal/character that might be in this setting?" Listen to a few responses. Choose a dynamic object and explain that the students have a challenge. They have to create that object using just their bodies in a frozen image. "What does frozen mean?" Practice freezing. Choose one of the objects. They have 5 seconds to create that frozen image. "5-4-3-2-1, FREEZE!" All the students create the frozen picture at the exact same moment. Teacher takes a moment to reflect back what they see and how everyone's frozen picture looks very different.
Variation: Build the entire setting, one object at a time. For example, you could create the setting of a park and ask students come up, one at a time and add something to the setting--an object, animal or person. Encourage them to introduce their character or object by saying "this setting needs," then coming up and freezing as that thing. ("This setting needs a slide," "This setting needs trees," etc.) Add 4-8 students to image.
Extension: Create a full group frozen image of a setting from a book you are reading in class. If they are focused, tap the frozen statues on the shoulder and have them make a sound or say something in their character's voice.
