Introduce Symbolism with Pixel Art

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through October 1st, 2021. Join today!


Students will determine a character's main characteristic and then develop a pixelated symbol that represents that trait.


  1. First students identify the main trait of a character from a story and sketch a symbol for that character.
  2. Next, they use grid paper to draw a pixelated version of that symbol.
  3. Finally, students can use a spreadsheet tool like Excel to create a digital version of their their pixelated symbol.


The registration window closes on October 1st, 2021
