Partner Drawing Game

With a few classes ahead of the rest of their grade due to the recent snow days, I've spent a class or two playing a drawing game the kids love.  Each student folds a piece of drawing paper "hamburger style" and draws a head and face -- ANY kind of head and face -- on one side of the fold, making sure that the neck of their head ends up at the crease and that they indicate with a couple marks where the body should join up.  I give them only a few minutes for the drawing before they get up and trade with a partner who hasn't seen their head.  Back at their seats, the students draw a body that connects to the "neck marks" without knowing what kind of head lies on the other side of the fold.  After a few minutes, we count down and open the papers to reveal some pretty funny and bizarre combinations!
