Earth Day is coming up...

Check out some of the Green Games from PBS.  Some of them tend toward the arcade-y, with speedy responses required (which doesn't leave a lot of room for the clinician to interject, discuss or model in any kind of meaningful way), but Thrifty Threads is a fun, expressive design game about recycling and adding new life to dour old clothing.

Language Lens
This activity would provide good opportunities to emphasize the category of clothing, describe and explain choices, and perhaps compare and contrast with what students are currently wearing.  Maybe pair it with a hands-on activity in a similar vein (if you are craftsy) to drive the green message home.
