Glyph – short for hieroglyphic. A glyph is a form of picture writing that conveys information. A legend is created, data is collected and specific components of the final picture have significance. The features of each finished glyph tell a story about the person who created it.
Legend – the legend explains what each feature of a glyph represents.
Templates – Use to record results from the activities. The students may choose a particular question and graph the results on a template. They can title their graph and display them around the glyph activities. You may choose to have the students create their own graphs instead of using the templates. Either way, they are developing data analysis and communication skills, as they write and talk about their data. This also stimulates their mathematical thinking as they compare, contrast and draw conclusions from their data.
