Hi, Anne,

I developed a unit on heraldry (coats of arms) for my HS art history
class, though I'm sure you could adapt it for younger kids. The research
was fascinating--there were many rules concerning the design and use of
coats of arms. My students--all Indians--enjoy designing their own by
adapting traditional motifs and colors; the unit is easily used even by
kids of non-European descent. I'd be glad to <gulp> e-mail you the
outline for the unit--I think I've got this attachment stuff figured out.
