Second Grade Seasonal Symbols

A symbol is a simple picture that represents an idea.  For instance, this simple picture...

... is the universal symbol for the idea of LOVE.  It can be very hard to draw a picture of love, but very easy to draw the symbol for it!  Also, no matter what language you speak, you can recognize the heart symbol and know that it stands for love.  That is the power of symbols.

In our second grade art class, we brainstormed simple images that could represent each of the four seasons, then drew out our symbols of the seasons!  Below are some student examples.
