Create a portrait representing Ramadan with the phases of the moon.
More than 1 billion people in the world, from various countries and walks of life, are Muslim. They use a lunar calendar to determine the length of the months and the year. During the ninth month of the Muslim calendar, Muslims mark an important time in their religion with the observance of the fast of Ramadan.
Invite students to investigate the observance of Ramadan and its importance to Muslims. Provide a variety of text and electronic resources for students to use during this research. When inquiry is complete, students share their learning with classmates.
Inform students that they will be creating representations of their Ramadan knowledge. Have them cover their work areas with recycled newspaper. Encourage students to paint a picture that illustrates their understanding of this solemn Muslim observance using Crayola® Watercolor Paints. This picture might take the form of an illustration of the moon phases, a mosque, traditional Muslim clothing, important cities such as Mecca, or other symbols of the fast of Ramadan. Allow paint to dry.
Add details with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils.
In preparation for displaying student artwork, each member of the class will write a summary paragraph representing learning about the Muslim religion and Ramadan.
