Warm Up (5 Minutes)

Read the following Letter:

Dear Second Graders,

My name is Mr. Jonathan Snow and I am the owner of a new company called Frosty’s Snowmen! Our company makes unique stuffed snowman for children all over the world. Since we are a new company we are in need of a logo.  I thought who would be the best at designing a logo for our company but kids. So I thought why not second graders.

Here is the task:

Be creative using Google Drawing to help create a logo for his new company.

The task must be done using only

Google Drawing and must include shapes.

Write at least one to two complete sentences telling me why your snowman would represent our company the best.

Your teacher can email your logo and I will choose  five different logos to be used one for each of our five locations.

Have Fun, Be Creative and I can’t wait to see your entries

Mr. Snow
