Seeing from other points of view: Learning Together at Home

This invitation - to look at things in new and unusual ways, or from someone else's perspective  - is a strong component of our  growing knapsack of suggestions at Learning Together at Home .

When we all look at something, we think everyone is seeing what we see, but that isn't exactly what happens. This is a game for reflecting and thinking about how the same object can be seen and interpreted in different ways.

There are many eyes, many minds, many ways of perceiving.

Everyone has a table and a chair at home.

Let's try and draw them on the first sheet of paper the way we usually see them.

 ...  now let's try and make ourselves as small as small can be… as small as an ant.

    ... Now we're going to grow as big as big as big can be… as big as an elephant
