In our Going Visual workshop, we used the Grids and Gestures activity to draw out the timeline of the quartz parrot theft. Participants were not allowed to use words, numbers or images. The result is an interesting mix of icons, frames, and maps.
Here are the drawings for part one of the timeline (the hours up to the theft):
And the drawings for part two (hours after the theft):
And for your reference in detecting the identity of the perpetrator of the crime, here is the timeline of events as well as a description of the suspects.
