I love Mandalas, I think they are just stunning.

I was recently gifted a mandala coloring book and thought my grade 5’s could easily do some mandalas.

We looked at traditional mandala images, learned about radial design and talked about pattern and shape.

We thought about easy ways we could get everything to look the same. I had them trace a plate for their circle. They then folded the paper so that they had “lines” for each section. I had items they could trace like blocks, cut paper, cups, plastic lids, and various found objects.

Once they completed the design, they colored it and cut it out and mounted it on paper.
