Why are signs important?
Have students walk about their classroom and identify the signs they see. What purpose do these signs serve in the classroom? How do we know what they mean? How many have pictures, or logos, on them? How many have words?
Take students on a class walk around their school building and/or their local neighborhoods to look for signs. Make a list of what they see and ask if they know what each sign means. Using a digital camera, ask one student to take photographs of each sign for future reference.
Upon returning to the classroom, have an adult upload student pictures to a classroom computer. Have students review these signs, noting how many were pictures and how many had words. Discuss the importance of each sign to the students.
Working individually or in small groups, ask students to select a sign to re-create. Provide students with 5" x 8" blank index cards to draw their signs on with Crayola® Washable Markers.
Once the sign is complete, allow students to attach their signs to a poster board using Crayola Glue Sticks. Allow time for glue to dry.
With the assistance of an adult, have each individual or group compose a riddle or clues about their signs, such as "I am red with white letters. What am I?" Provide time in the school day to solve student riddles.
