Romeo and Juliet: Abstract Representations

Today's Romeo and Juliet lesson allowed all of you to choose an abstract representation for Romeo and Juliet. I gave each of you a sheet with some fairly random drawings on it. You all chose a set of symbols to explain the situation and feelings of Romeo and Juliet. After this, you all used chalk to recreate your chosen symbols on brick or on the pavement. I snapped a photo of each of your recreations. You will use these photos to help explain the connection you see between the abstract design and the story of Romeo and Juliet next class.

Here are some of your chalk drawings:
