Every day, students are asked to come up with as many uses as they can think of for an everyday object. Initially the teacher might select the object, but students could take over, or the class could run scavenger hunts to identify the object. Student brainstorming would be posted and shared publicly within the classroom.

Every Friday, students look over all of the uses they came up with for each object that week. In groups, they then create a story involving one use of each object. Story could be written, drawing, video, photos, etc. Stories would then be shared back with the class.
