The 8th graders came during their Social Studies classes to create a personal Coat of Arms. Each student had to choose particular symbols and images that hold certain values. For example, a tower symbolizes protection, while a hydra symbolizes mysteriousness. The students also had to determine their mark of cadency, or birth order. A first born child is symbolized by a zig zag line, while a second born child with a crescent. Even the colors were representative of important values!
