  14. 15. <ul><li>Step 1: </li></ul><ul><li>Give students a riddles and ask them to solve it in pairs. (Intelligences: interpersonal, verbal/ linguistic). </li></ul><ul><li>Step 2: </li></ul><ul><li>Guided imagery: Tell students to close their eyes and to relax; then describe a painting to them. Ask them to imagine it. Play music while you are giving the students the description. (Intelligences: spatial/ visual intelligences, musical). </li></ul><ul><li>Step 3: </li></ul><ul><li>Distribute to each person one description that has a certain words missing. (Intelligences: interpersonal, verbal/ linguistic). </li></ul>
  15. 16. <ul><li>Step 4: </li></ul><ul><li>Ask the groups to create a tableau of the painting by acting out the description. (Intelligences: body/ kinesthetic). </li></ul><ul><li>Step 5: </li></ul><ul><li>Show the students the painting. Ask them to fine five things about it that differ from their tableau or from how they imagined the painting to look. (Intelligences: logical/ mathematical). </li></ul><ul><li>Step 6: </li></ul><ul><li>Reflection: Ask students if they have learnt any thing about how to look at a painting. Ask them if they have learnt any thing new about the target language. (Intelligences: intrapersonal). </li></ul>
