  Abundance means having more than just the necessities of lifeó it means having extra things and special things. Harvest time is a time of abundance for farmers and is celebrated in many countries (Thanksgiving Day in the United States, for example). 

Colorful flower gardens, cornucopias, and vases full of flowers are symbols that represent abundance. We can look for decorations on objects made or used in Illinois and make connections about the idea of abundance. 

What are some contemporary symbols of abundance?
