Loads of Meanings

Have small groups look up the meanings of point in a dictionary and write each meaning on a different slip of paper. Then tell the groups to make a model of a laundromat washer out of a box or cardboard. Have them put their slips into it. Children can then "agitate" the washer, open it, and take turns drawing slips. Each student must then use the word point, with the meaning from the slip, in a sentence.
kid and washer
