Mandalas!

Standard: 

  • SL.9-10.5. Make strategic use of digital media (e.g., textual, graphical, audio, visual, and interactive elements) in presentations to enhance understanding of findings, reasoning, and evidence and to add interest.

Learning Target: Students will complete their mandala project in a creative and artistic way, as well as compose a paragraph explaining or justifying the symbols they have used to represent themselves.

Daily Video: 

Welcome to day 3! Today we are continuing with the mandalas we began yesterday. You should have composed your sun sentence and shadow sentence yesterday – remember, these sentences will go around the edges of your circle, forming a frame for your mandala. After your sentences are written in (I suggest using pencil) you can start to fill your mandala with symbols that represent yourself.

We’re going to spend the entire class working on these, and you guys are welcome to use any of the art supplies I have (markers, crayons, colored pencils…) so get to it!

When you finish, I want you to flip your mandala over to the back, write your name on it, and write a short paragraph (5-7 sentences) that explains your mandala. You will be sharing this with the class 🙂

Here’s some inspirational examples 🙂
