First grade did a chapter from the book called Doors and Passages. They did a rubbing for the doors and used painted papers and decorative papers to add symmetrical details beside the doors and lastly they finished off with glitter glue.
Third grade also worked through the section of Adornment, but their images are of the Elephants, which are considered sacred animals to them. The elephants are painted with beautiful bright colors and designs, as well as fabric and jewelry
Fifth grade looked at the section of the book entitled Textiles. I chose to do block prints with all the beautiful organic shapes. We watched a video from Youtube which shows the beautiful block prints being carved. And how carefully each yard of fabric is hand painted with layers of paint from these blocks. Students did their work on foam board and printed several prints. They cut and embellished these once dry.
