THE MANDALA PROJECT, ESSAY, and PRESENTATION

Worth: 250 points


A mandala is a wondrous and meaningful design made in the form of a circle to represent the harmony and wholeness of life or the wholeness of a person. Over the past 2, 000 years, mandalas have become a tool for displaying individual and cultural uniqueness. To make a mandala, a person begins by thinking of symbols that represent him or her. These symbols might include a dove to represent peace, a heart to represent love, or an open hand to represent friendship. The symbols a person chooses are then carefully drawn in the mandala.

The shape of a mandala is a circle because a circle is the most simple and universal shape found in the world. It is the form of the eye, the sun, and a snowflake. Also, since there is always a center to a circle, as you look at a mandala, it exercises your mind and draws you into the center of yourself or the topic.
DIRECTIONS:

1). On a poster board or construction paper, create your own mandala that represents YOU. Your mandala should be colorful, creative, and include at least 5 symbols (drawn, photos, computer images). On an index card, write a brief explanation.

(diagram with explanation)


  • WORTH: 50 points

  • DUE: Friday, October 21, 2011

2). Using your mandala as the basis for your writing, create an autobiographical essay that reveals 3 significant aspects of your life. Your essay should describe at least 3 of the symbols you’ve chosen for your mandala, what the symbols mean, and why they are significant representations of your life. You should also help your reader to understand how all these symbols come together to demonstrate unity or wholeness, how they hold together to communicate the “essence” of who you are.



  • ROUGH DRAFT – WORTH 50 points DUE: Thursday, October 20, 2011

  • FINAL DRAFT – WORTH 100 points DUE: Thursday, October 27, 2011
