Hi Angyl,

The concepts, techniques and materials will depend on the grade/age
level of the class you are teaching. For elementary students from
1st through 6th grade, you can always introduce your subject with a
story. The story will depend again on the age/grade level. But a
story, if chosen well will capture them for you and have them ready
for the next step...the actual info about body design and experience
of body design. On the higher age/grade levels, storytelling, then
story re-enactment can truly drive the point home. Especially if
you "tell" the story to the older age group. Telling a story rather
than reading one allows you to embellish it with some aspect of
henna. Don't overlook the possibility of Rangoli as an option to
henna. A story, re-enactment and the project that allows for and
requires the design of a very basic Rangoli pattern individually,
then selection of 1 to 4 to be done with colored chalk on the
playground, on huge paper with markers or other materials could
provide a nice "group" activity for 5th and 6th graders who can
handle and carry over the required concepts for projects that require
more than one class to complete. It could be a good exercise using
both design and color concepts.

For single session lessons, the body art lesson would work best.

Just some things to think about.
