In this video, you will make a list of five words or phrases you would use to describeyourself to others. Then, you will use the list to come up with a set of symbols, shapes,and colors to use in your logo later in the lesson.
How you describe yourself is up to you. You might include interests, special qualitiesor talents, or strengths. You might also include words that describe your background, identity,beliefs, or heritage. To describe yourself, you might list thatyou…Like to listen to music,Are easy to talk to,Love to volunteer in your community,Are proud of your heritage,Or love Math.
Every person is unique, so what makes you “you”?
To begin your list, return to the document you created in the last video.
Then, type the first way you would describe yourself to others. Use a numbered list soit’s easier to read. Don’t spend too much time thinking aboutthis. Just think of the things that make you proud, happy, or different.
Continue typing more words or phrases until you have at least five on the list.
If you can’t think of five ways you would describe yourself to others, think about howyour friends or family would describe “you” to other people.
Now, return to the first item on the list. Is there a symbol, shape, or color you mightuse in your logo to tell people about that part of yourself?
For example, if you typed that you are very courageous, you might choose to put a lionsymbol in your logo. Try to make connections between what you listedand symbols, shapes, or colors for as many words or phrases as you can.
It’s o-k to list more than one symbol, shape, or color for each item. You’ll choose whichones to use in your logo later in the lesson.
If you listed a favorite color, you might want to use the color in your logo. Finish listing a symbol, shape, or color foreach item.
Now, it’s your turn: List five words or phrases you would use to describe yourself to others,And list a symbol, shape, or color to go with each item on the list.
