 The Mystery Bag
Instructions: With a partner, examine the object inside of your paperbag. YOU MAY ONLY USE YOUR SENSE OF TOUCH. Don’t peek insidethe bag—just use your hands to observe the object.Make statements about the object. Try to communicate your amountof certainty
exactly 
, using modals and any expressions you know. Usea “high” ethos, like you are writing a paper for class.
Ex:
The object feels heavy and cold. The surface is smooth, and it appears tobe about the same size as an apple. The object may be made of rubber. If I push my finger against it, I can press a dent into the object. It’s possible thathe object would bounce like a ball if I threw it on the ground. Although it’snot small, it’s very light. When I tap it with my finger, I can hear that it must be hollow. This evidence suggests that the object may be a racquetball.
As you observe the object, try to answer these questions:1) Is the object dangerous?I am _____% sure2) Is the object natural (was it ever living)?I am _____% sure3) Is the object valuable? (Worth > $5)I am _____% sure4) Can you buy the object in a store?I am _____% sure
