Taking Cave Art to a new level

An all-time favourite of mine, the EFL blog Tekhnologic has a two-part series of posts about using visual symbols in teaching:

Hieroglyphics for Teachers: Graphic Communication in the Classroom

Hieroglyphs for Teachers: Part 2

You can read about the concept (it’s apparently suitable for all levels, though I would recommend starting with elementary or pre-intermediate learners) and download printable icons which are less dramatic than this Lascaux painting, but very handy if you want to give clear and memorable instructions, encourage students to speak and, in a pinch, remember what you were planning to do next!
