I have NEVER done this event yet, but I have seen the 2004 powerpoint for it....It's kinda confusing, but I'm guessing the scavenger and heart would be ok...The meterology? Perhaps not, but I don't know really...I think, to me, it would be ok? Because it's not a secret code or anything, it's something that everyone could study off of, IF they find the website.SOOOOOO, it think all 3 are ok..So, where do you think the line is drawn for symbols? I can understand not using something like this: http://www.ikonet.com/en/visualdictiona ... clouds.php but sometimes a concept can't really be drawn without a symbol. How do you draw gravity? Maybe an apple falling out of the tree? Well, is does that drawing "look like gravity" or not? Is that allowed?
How about a heart shape? I mean it sort of is shaped like the organ named heart. Is it close enough to a heart in your body? Or, how about if you add some little blood vessels coming out of it? How similar must it be?
OK, here is another example. Let's say we're drawing scavenger. We have a bird picking on a dead animal and to make the animal look dead, we've got X's for eyes on it. Dead animals don't really have eyes that look like X's, but they look sort of like X's. Is that OK?
You can but i don't think you can use + because they consider that a symbol.Hey! So I have never done this event, and the rules are unclear. Are you able to draw a belt + an asteroid, so you know that the draw is of an asteroid belt? Or do you have to actually draw an asteroid belt? This event seems fun, But I need to know whether you can draw such as described above, because if so that would be SO MUCH EASIER! Please try to answer to the best of your abilities! Thanks!
Code: Select all
I feel like our team is learning how to represent a cold front in that way and then they are learning science jargon and the usual symbols used by scientists to represent their fields. I am confused by the rules, because I don't know if the "belt" could be used to get your teammates to say "asteroid belt" (I don't think that was allowed last year when it was a trial event)...will we get a clarification on this?Thanks for the clarification on the clarifications - we'll wait to ask. Until then, we'll press on.
I THINK the spirit of the rule is we don't want kids memorizing symbols that don't really look like the objects. So, instead of drawing that cold front symbol (line on map with triangles), draw a cold and a front, how ever you do that, or weather changing from nice to not so nice.
