During the last 4 classes we finished learning about the various arts and culture of India. India has been widely known for its famous arts from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. The kids did an outstanding job of sharing their knowledge from their visit to India. We did a comparison between India and the US arts and culture.
The various arts included from the era of the Mughals, Rajputs, to the British. We talked about the famous Tanjore paintings. The arts from caves of Ajanta and Ellora were covered too. Bandhani and Zardoshi patterns were discussed too.
We ended this unit by making them color a Rangoli sheet. All in all it was an exciting journey through India again.
