Continuation of Asian Studies- India

We have had a great beginning to India week in our Asian studies! We are lucky enough to have a family from India in our class and they have brought in many items of clothing, scarves and bangles for the children to explore.
We have looked at beautiful objects from India (a gift from our family- thank you!), colored the map of India and the Indian flag.
We have also colored Rangoli which is a geometric design. We will be applying colored sand later in the week (using colored sand or rice is the typical way) but today we have been coloring these beautiful designs.
The children also walked on the line to special Indian sitar music by Ravi Shankar while holding special items from India.
We will have more fun tomorrow as we will have visitors teaching us more about India! Stay tuned!
