In this activity, participants will practice using precise communication skills to describe an object to a partner (without the partner seeing the object) while the partner attempts to recreate the object. The lesson plan can be supplemented with the Science Olympiad At Home Write It Do It video on the Science Olympiad TV You Tube channel.

This activity is suited for the classroom, an afterschool program, or at-home learning.
