I think that it would be great fun and very useful for my students to set up photo ops to illustrate a combination of stories such as the teachers at the table with some whole and some broken crayons. Post the digital photograph, and have the students write the story (stories) to go with the photo including equations. This would require that they focus on specific data in the photo for a particular story and eliminate the extraneous material that does not pertain to their purpose.
