Letter doodling

You need:
  1. white drawing sheet A3 size
  2. ruler
  3. pencil
  4. black markers
  5. colored markers or pencils 
Shot pictures of letter doodling and fonts - new and older ones. 
Discuss the pictures. Letters in those alphabets are a kind of family.  How can you see that? What can you say about the lines? Are they fat, thin, curvy or angular? What do you feel seeing those alphabets?

Draw a grid with your students (a lesson about using rulers is always a struggle!). In this lesson there are 2 inches between the lines and a half inch between the letters.

After drawing their grid, students design their own alphabet and trace them with markers.
