SEL in A Squiggle Directions:
1) Distribute a "squiggle" to each student.
2) Distribute the same materials to each student (pencil and crayons, markers, etc). Everyone should have the same tools.
3) Let kiddos turn their squiggles into whatever they like. Give them a set amount of time. I give 30 minutes, but that is because I'm using the time to talk to students while they color to gather information. ("What's your favorite color?" or "What made you turn this into a cat? Do you have a cat?"
4) Ask everyone to line their drawings up. Have students discuss how the squiggles all started off the same, but they evolved into something personal and meaningful. Allow time to share.
