Wall Scribbles
By Colleen Messina

1     Have you ever scribbled on a wall with crayons? Most children try it between the ages of two and five. Their masterpieces might have made their mommies cry. Some adults still draw on walls. Their scribbles are called graffiti.
2     Graffiti is usually on walls. It is on buildings. It is in public places. Most people think that graffiti is a crime. This is because it is done without permission. Other people think that graffiti is pretty. They think it is art.
3     Graffiti has been around for a long time. People marked on stone monuments in Greece. They also did it in ancient Rome. People even put magic spells on the walls. They did that in a city called Pompeii. People did graffiti in America, too. On the Oregon Trail, pioneers wrote their names on a rock. The rock was called Signature Rock. A signature is when someone writes his or her name.

Extended Activities:

1.  Write a dialogue between a parent and a child who scribbled all over the freshly-painted walls of his or her room. How will the parent react to this new decoration on the wall? Be sure to write about how the parent and the child feel about the scribbles on the wall.

2.  Your parents might know a lot about cleaning up art on walls. Ask your parents what they would do to get crayon marks off walls in your house. Ask them if you ever drew on the walls, in case you have forgotten about it, and write up a short description of what they tell you.
