Today we made an "All about me" glyph.

What are glyphs?... 
Glyphs are pictures that tell us information.
To make a glyph that shows data related to several attributes,
each person in the class decorates a picture according to a given key.

This is our key.....
Look at our glyphs.  What do they tell us?
This glyph tells us that this person is a boy.
He is 5 years old.
He has a brother or sister and he has a pet.

This glyph tells has that this person is a girl.
She has a brother or sister.
She is 5 years old and has no pets.

This glyph tells us this person is a boy.
He is 5 years old.
He has a brother or a sister and has no pets.

What does this glyph tell us?

On Monday we are going to sort the information. 
Watch this space.
