There are three parts to this assignment. Use the Symbols of Kings: Establishing Context worksheet to complete your work.
Part 1: Research heraldic symbols of the Royal Coat of Arms of King James I.
Part 2: Create a shield of your own based on your values and lifestyle:
- Incorporate what you have learned about heraldic colors and symbols to design your shield.
- You can give it a modern twist by including symbols that represent your current interests (a golden eagle listening to an iPod, for example).
Part 3: Write a paragraph of at least five sentences explaining how all of the elements included (shape, color, and symbols) are representative of your life and your values.
- Your paragraph should include proper grammar, punctuation, and other language conventions.
