What Is Me? Explore the Self through Names, Art and Symbols
Four lessons make up this unit on self. Learners research and discuss the significance of their given names and examine their perceptions of astrological signs and horoscopes. They explore objects in the paintings of Canadian artist Robert Harris (you could use work by a painter with more relevance to your class if needed), illustrate several symbols that represent them, and create a crest for themselves based on the symbols they chose.
