Last night I was in a class I’m taking to complete my GT certification. One of the first things we did was tell about ourselves in that getting to know you kind of way. Except, the teacher (who happens to be my friend and colleague, Ruth) showed us something really cool to do. I think this is something all kids could really get into. She shared this cool emoji representation of inventions throughout history. Then we each created our own Emoji history explaining what the symbols meant. It was engaging, interesting, simple to set up, and thought provoking.
