Apple Glyph Project
This project was done as an "icebreaker" with students at the beginning of the school year. All of the students were represented by a "glyph" created by answering questions. The students had to choose a color apple based on the answer to the question "What grade are you in?". The choices were red for kindergarten, yellow for first grade and green for second grade.
The next question referred to the stem on the apple. The question was "Are you a boy or a girl?". The stems are green for girls and brown for boys.
Then came the question "How old are you?". The caterpillar was colored according to the students age. The final question placed the leaves on the apple, "How do you like to eat apples?".
Finally, the apples were reviewed and the students used the key to decide if the apple was made by a kindergartner, first grader, or second grader, and if the student was a boy or a girl. The apples were hung in the hall as a display for Open House.
