To all those who have responded,

Wow! I had no idea that a question could generate such a wide variety of
responses. I have enjoyed reading through all the viewpoints on this

1. My 4th graders are learning the vocabulary and application of
radial symmetry

2. I wanted them to apply their knowledge of color analysis,
line design, and patterns to create a kaliedoscope in 2D

3. I always include cultures and time periods as springboards,
many times an in depth study of a culture such as Japan which
we are now leaving.

4. I was inquiring about suggested connections and see that
science and math are clear connections.

5. I was concerned about the "religious" connotations of Mandalas
even though they are very beautiful.(especially with elementary)

I have learned an important lesson on clarification of thought when posting
to to a listserve. Thank you for all the input.
