Create a 3-D braille chart simply with Crayola® School Glue, Markers and paper.
Students research and read about the life of Helen Keller. To explore what it would be like to function as a blind person, students can create a braille alphabet and experience how to read using touch instead of sight.
Students should use a book or the Internet as a resource for copying the braille alphabet.
On a large piece of construction paper, students measure and draw a chart with at least 26 boxes to hold the alphabet.
Using Crayola® Markers, draw the dots for the braille alphabet in each box. First make the guide lines, one vertical line with two cross bars. Then make a dot using a Crayola Marker.
When completed, use Crayola School Glue to make a dot of glue on top of each Crayola Marker dot. Crayola School Glue is thick and will dry clear with a raised surface. When making the dot of glue, make sure students pull the glue straight up and not to the side so it doesn’t cause a line drip. If a drip happens, just use a small piece of paper to wipe the drip mark away and make the drip line flat. Let the braille chart dry overnight.
Students can practice reading the braille alphabet by creating smaller cards with their name on it. Then randomly hand out the cards to students and have them read the cards using their fingers.
