Materials:
Unlined paper – 1 sheet per student
Markers
Crayons

Handouts:
Checklist for Sun-Mandala

Warm Up:
Quickwrites – My Life


Activity 1:
Within the framework of a circle, using color and shape, but no words, students will draw or symbolize all of their sun images and all of their shadow images. These images may be arranged any way the student wants. Students may want to consider how they place things in relation to each other or consider only the way the colors and shapes look together. The artistry of the mandala is not important. Students are encouraged to use symbols, if they can not draw well. For example, a simple drawing of the footprint if a bear can stand for a bear. Students will discuss how to symbolize something they can not draw. During this activity students will need to consider relationships among the symbols (depicted by size, color, placement, interaction), deepening insights into the character.

Homework:
Reading-Read for 30 minutes each night in a challenging chapter book and complete an entry on your reading log.
Write to Learn- Complete your sun mandala using the items on the Checklist For the Sun Mandala.
