Symbolic Themes

002symbolic1200Symbols are objects that represent something other than itself, for instance, the Yin/Yang symbol below represents the relationship that opposite forces have on each other like light versus dark and hot versus cold..

Symbols are used everywhere from functional traffic signs to religious symbolism representing concepts, ideas and mythologies.

A classroom activity might be to gather different images of traffic signs and make them into masks for a lesson on traffic laws and pedestrian safety.

Weather symbols would also be good for masks teamwork building exercises. Make masks that look just like the images the television meteorologists show when they report the weather. Who could be the sun, the rain, a rainbow or a cloud?
