I was inspired to teach this lesson after viewing contour hand drawings completed by A. Jackson's students at http://artisthebestpartoftheday.blogspot.com Thank you Ms. Jackson!
The 6th Grade students learned the origin of American sign language, and they learned the ASL alphabet. The students identified the sign language symbols in their names/nicknames and created drawings showing these symbols.
