Step 1: Make the "Craft" by Answering the Questions.
This part of the glyph process is kind of like a puzzle. First, come up with a list of questions. I try to think of questions that are related to the finished craft project. For example, to make the dog glyph, I ask them about their pets.
Each "craft" is unique to each child's answers. For example, in our turkey glyph, the turkeys each have different colors of feathers depending on what they like to eat on Thanksgiving.
Step 2: Make the Analysis Booklet.
Step 3: Collect the Data
Count how many "crafts" are in the center of the circle.
Step 4: Share the Results
Record the answers on the class analysis chart. Share, interpret, and analyze the results.
You may also want to get each child a printable page of the class analysis page. This helps to keep the kids engaged.
Be sure to display the "craft" with the analysis chart. It is easy for those not knowing to think you are just doing craft projects!
Here are a few of the glyphs that we have done.
