Students create a Personal Crest (like a personal "Coat of Arms") that tells other people about their beliefs and dreams. Included with the Personal Crest shield is a key that shows what each section of the Personal Crest means. Colored in and mounted on black cardboard these crests look terrific in good solid colors. Students should be encouraged to use symbols with good dark outlines.
Once on display in your room the class can play Treasure Hunt games where they interpret other people's Personal Crests to find out more about them.
