Get Ready for 1/4: Soul Surfer Symbols

Symbols abound in Soul Surfer, starting immediately with the title:  Why do you think Bethany Hamilton’s journey was entitled Soul Surfer?  What does that symbolize?  Talk about it with your classmates and leave a comment with your ideas!

Feeling artistic?  The world of professional surfing is funded through product endorsements from companies such as Rip Curl and Quick Silver.  They all have their unique and recognizable branding symbols.  Your challenge:  Create your own brand’s symbol.  Think about what your icon can symbolize about you.  Then make it happen.  Want to work on your Mac?  You can create a drawing in your Google Drive account and then share it with Ms. Andria to post up on our blog.  Prefer working with print?  Use the library’s art supplies and doodle away.  We can scan your illustration if you want to post it on the blog.

    I know! She’s entitled Soul Surfer Because a person who surfs just for fun is called a Soul Surfer.

    I think we should put giant paintings of waves and tape them on the bookshelf and hang up rip curl signs. We should have a tropical breakfast because they live in Hawaii.
