This lesson creates a bridge between sacred cultural tradition and modern respect and appreciation. Not only are students intrigued by the historical significance of the Mandala and it's meanings, it forms a bridge between humans from different cultures. This lesson includes a brief history of the Mandala ceremony itself, a detailed description of the supporting project, and a sample assessment for evaluation of student work. ALSO- There are two PowerPoint presentations which support the themes of the project: "Introduction to Color Theory", and "The Sacred Art of the Mandala." They are lovely complements to the lesson and project.
