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?

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 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.

Refer to section 3 of the rules. 3.c. tells us that minus signs are for shortening single words. From the same section, underlines are for indicating how many words there are (which I'd get into the habit of doing if it's a multiple word term). Next, looking at 3.f. and 3.c. lines 3 and 4, we see that the supervisor will be looking for the exact word. If 'refract' is not an okay substitute for 'refraction', then 'kinetic energy' is not an okay substitute for 'energy', especially when your partner has the ability to tell you how many words are in the term. Both are close but not quite there.
