Emojic 8 Ball

Here’s a fun lesson starter for a creative writing activity…

  • Have the students ask the Emojic 8 ball an interesting question.
  • Students receive a response back in emoji form.
  • Students write a paragraph or two describing what the response means.

Update: If XKCD is blocked on student computers, have the teacher project the 8 ball to the class and get the class to ask one question. Have each student write a response to the same question and then compare/contrast the stories.

I could have a field day with this question and response…
