We are surrounded by symbols. Language, signs, colour, sounds, even textures can be symbols in a given context.
Question for class discussion:
What are some of the common symbols we use? Why do you think we use them?
Create a poster that contains symbols that represent you. Your poster will be 1 A4 sheet in size. It should not contain any words, unless they are in the form of word-art.
- This lesson came about, due to the fact that many of my students were using symbols in their assignments, without really understanding the actual meaning of them.
- The question is a prompt that is intended for students to suggest such things as street and hazard signs, company logos, etc.
