My sister and I used to love the gameshow "Bumper Stumpers." During my first year of teaching, I created a middle school lesson based on that show. I'm thinking of dusting if off for my 4th graders this year. This can be taught completely on the computer. The identity component and excitement about driving make it a very strong 7th and 8th grade lesson, but I could see where it might have been a good "sub lesson" or sketchbook prompt at the high school level.
For the critique, I let the students write clues that are used during our own game of Bumper Stumpers.
