"Doodle You" is a short unit I designed for visual arts, or Language. It is a fun activity where students analyse their doodles, kind of like dream, or handwriting analysis!
On the first page it asks students to doodle whatever they want. I have sent it home with kids to doodle while they were watching TV or talking on the phone. When they come back with their doodles, they look through the list given (of over 150 items such as curvy lines, fish, rockets etc) and circle the things that appear in their doodles. Then they look up the meaning of each item on one of the six sheets provided. The items are in alphabetical order and each have a one line description. Here are a few examples:
If you doodled a book, it represents all of the experiences in your like, it means that you have learned from the past.
If you doodled a Rocket it means that you are looking for something to motivate you to do more work.
Students record their results on the sheets provided. Then, they agree or disagree with each meaning. I have had students take this sheet and use it to produce a final piece of writing.
In total there are 9 pages.
