Construct a graphic reminder of the Five Pillars of Islam.
During a unit of study focused on Saudi Arabia, invite students to identify the Five Pillars of Islam. The Five Pillars of Islam provide a framework for Muslims traditions. Student groups investigate each of these pillars. Organize a variety of text and electronic resources for students to view during their research.
Extend student research with the inclusion of Islamic architecture. Encourage students to look at some pictures of columns found in Islamic architecture. Students study the designs and color schemes in preparation for making a 3-D reminder of the Five Pillars.
Construct the pillars. With Crayola® Scissors, students cut five short cardboard rolls and one roll long enough to span their tops. Illustrate the columns and top with Islamic geometric designs using Crayola Twistables. Write the name of each pillar on a column and label the top.
Students cover their work areas with recycled newspaper. Paint a cardboard base with Crayola Multicultural Washable Paint. Paint the columns. The crayon will show through (resist) the paint. Air-dry the paint.
With Crayola Model Magic compound, shape a top for each of the columns. Air-dry the tops overnight. Attach the pieces with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry your structure.
Display student artwork in a prominent place in the classroom. To accompany the Pillars artwork, students compose a summary paragraph reflecting their learning.
