After playing the peanut game, what other objects can you think of that might be uninviting on the outside but prove to be appealing on the inside? (Oysters w/ Pearls, an old book, kiwis, etc.) How are you misunderstood?
Write a poem in honor of one of these misunderstood objects. Yes, it can be about you if you like.
Next, think of the cliches that we came up with as a class for the peanuts. Is there anything about you or your personality that you could metaphorically compare to the peanut? For example, "I have a tough exterior but when you get to know me, I'm pretty smooth."
