  • A metal
  • A rock or mineral
  • A color
  • An activity
  • An artwork
  • A weapon
  • A natural phenomenon
  • A force of nature
  • A mythological creature

Instruction

  3. Read your portrait to the group or the class

Examples of sentence structures that can be used to explain or justify

Since it reminds me of…

Because it is similar to…

  1. I have always been wondering what kind of metal I would be if I weren´t a human begin, I been thinking for a while and come up with only one answer, I would totally be Coppar because its color are similar to my hair.
    While thinking of my hairs color it reminded me of my favorit color Orange, I wonder why.

    Suddenly I woke up realizing the thoughts I had was never real, I gotten up from my bed without realising the legs that I once had was gone and suddenly a wheel chair was standing next to my bed.

    Suddenly I woke up again, My first thought was checking my legs, and they were still there. The stress of thinking a life without legs were gone, I started walking around and thinking how many possibilitys I have with legs, Watching Da Vincis inventions sketches on my wall started thinking I have a bright future.

    On my way to school I saw the bullies in my school and was thinking a long range weapon would be the best for a scared cat like me.

    By going to school everyday I evolve and are getting smarter and smarter making my offspring a new begin.

    My class room is always messy but I am always calm and don´t interact with others so much, I am like a small wave in the sea.

    Today the teacher we had, were a history teacher, While I was listening to the teacher my mind started going in it own thoughts, I was suddenly in a mythological world full of mythological creature, The first mythological creature was the dragons flying in the free sky, It looked so awesome I admired them and wanted to be like them.

  2. If I were a metal I would be titanium. Because I’m usually really harsh as a person and usually don’t get affected by others, and like titanium hard to break through. This also means that I would call myself the color blue. I’m laid back and don’t really care much, harsh in a way, but still reachable if one uses the right methods. When I stand face forward at the gates of hell I’ll be martial art, harsh for the outside world, but on the inside I’ve reached the pinnacle of calmness. The pinnacle of calmness, a bow, calm and steady just before it explodes with a bang. Like a volcanic eruption slow to get started but then the explosion, disaster… The gates, now open, everything around me, warm and slow. Like the calm before the storm, a lion laying in wait for his prey, calm and quiet. Gates now closed behind me will test how well I can adapt – like evolution – steady and slow taking everything step by step. As the burning pits of hell drag me towards them I’ll think back at my life and ask myself why couldn’t I have been smart also then all of this would be but a distant dream.

  3. If I would be a metal I would be chrome, shiny and polished on the outside while rockhard and nearly indestructible on the inside.
    The Amethyst represent my more emotional side, both for the soft feelings like love, and the though ones like anger.
    Through my big heart shines only two colors, black and yellow, and through my life it will always be the same and this is because the football. It has drawn generations of people in to love.
    Kappa, through the dawn of time and the creation of the world, the Kappa has flourished. The Kappa makes many people have good laughs to make them withstand their misery, all off this so it can live on and reproduce in different forms.
    The strongest weapon against our enemies and people who threaten the light should be smit by the Ashbringer, the paladin orders weapon, which I would say I do, to fight the evil and defeat the evil of this world (aka Aaron).
    The smooth and soft light made by the Aurora Borealis represent my soft side and the viking blood running through my veins.
    The beautiful tidal waves outside the east pacific ocean would describe me being so beautiful but dangerous at the same time.
    The typical dwarf with a thick Scottish accent and fighting for fun is what I desire, to not be scared of anything.

    I am Charon

    I am copper since I may not be the most beautiful but I am in abundance and I am useful to an extent. I am the rosseta stone since I can write down a lot about me but it would take a a 1000 years to be deciphered. I am dark grey since I don’t reflect or take in everything but still I still reflect more. I am pendling since my life has been a roller coaster and I am the work of art that is left from it. I am a revolver since if I’m used with care I can be strong but used in a hurry there is a great chans of missing. I am the earthquake and the aftershock since I can start things and I have a hard time of letting it go. I am Charon, the ferryman of hades, since I can drag people down with me, but only if they deserve it.

  15. I was born as piece of metal or more exact as a piece of iron. I´m starting to rust and hopefully i will die soon. Sometimes I´m thinking what life would be if i was something else.
    If i was born as a rock of mineral, like my friend John who is gloving sappier.
    Or if i was able to bike like the boy with the cool helmet who sometimes come´s by and drives past me.
    Or just something awesome that everyone travels miles to see, maybe a giant iron block that doesn’t rust with cool shapes.
    How cool would it be to become a force of nature something so big as a tsunami or a volcanic eruption or maybe something so small as the photosynthesis.
    My life is a bitch!
    I would like to be a big black bomb so i could blow up myself, and hopefully i can wake up as a bird or a lion.
    ”A BLACK bomb” Oh my god i hate black. That´s probably the worst color. Everything about black is just sad. Just like my life. Sometimes i dream about being a color, maybe blue like the sky. Everyone likes the sky, not the piece of rusting iron that lays in a plash.

  20. In the beginning of time, I was gallium. I melted quickly in the hands of the good.
    I then evolved to a diamond, which showed my power since I am unbreakable.
    Then I was the color of the night sky, the color of the dead and the color of the shadows. I was black.
    I became mourning, and everyone who had lost someone came to me.
    The mourning painted me, and thus I was a painting of the shadows consuming all life.
    I became dangerous, and the weak used me to cast terrifying spells.
    I became death, collecting the spirits of those who had left their corpses.
    I learned of the spirits, and thus became growth, giving life instead of taking it.
    In the end I evolved and took a physical form again. As a seraphim, I protected everything good and helped the souls of those who died.
