Dear Linda, I did the manadalas several years ago with mixed 6,7,8 graders. I am sure yuor 5ths will love it. I was lucky enough ( not planned on my part angels taking care of me) to have the Sakler Gallery in DC have visiting Tibetan monks doing a large sand mandala..I think they were here 3 weeks working on it, you could go watch or it was on line, Very cool it was a gift of healing for our country in light of 9-11. when it was all done they swept the sand into vessels and walked in ceremony to the potomac river and poured the sand into the river. I thought the whole idea of them coming and demonstrating this as an act of healing was very cool. We would check in and watch them online, they would chant occasionally. they kids were in awe. thought you might could use the healing idea. i know you will have a great time with this lesson. peace carol
