    That's right.

    They were all drawn by teenagers, from 13 to 16 years old, elementary to intermediate level.

    I gave the students 10 dingbats of my own to solve first. Then I gave them scrap paper and challenged them to make as many dingbats as possible in twenty minutes (they came up with 10 or more each).

    Finally, I gave them coloured pens and clean paper and asked them to draw one or two of their favourites more neatly. We used the finished dingbats for a class quiz.

    Just some?!?

    They're not that hard, are they?

    I'm thinking of doing more of these with my pre-intermediate students this term. If I do, I'll add them to the site.
