  • Before the Activity:I’ll show you some pictures, and you can pretend to do something that goes with that picture. Are you ready?” 
  • During the Activity: “What is this a picture of? (Pause.) Yes, it’s [daytime/ nighttime]. What is something you do during the [day/night]? (Pause.) Oh, that’s great. Let’s pretend to do that together. What is this picture? (Pause.) Yes, it’s [water/sky]. What is something you see in the [water/sky]? That’s fun. Let’s pretend to be that.” (Continue as long as there is interest.)
