Glyphs are a great way for your students to get to know one another. They are also excellent data collection tools that can be used again and again in the classroom. This glyph was designed to accompany the novel Touching Spirit Bear. However, the glyph can be used in conjunction with ANY animal story, native american tales, or similar units. As with all glyphs, it can be used for weeks after its been completed as students utilize them to collect and record data in the form of charts, tables, and graphs.
