Here’s a fun way to activate some visual/spatial intelligence.
Have students draw their names with pictures.

Example:  “Gary” could draw a bunch of grapes for G, an apple for A, ring for R, and a blotch of yellow for Y.

Once everyone has completed drawings, post or share in groups to guess the names.  Or, save for name tags or desk top names.

If you really want to pose a challenge, have students draw names in literature or study…or even concepts.
