Today we are looking at traditional Indian artwork, specifically Mehendi Henna! These beautiful, intricate patterns are made using a dye from a tropical shrub. Typically, women who are about to get married will have these designs on their hands and feet. You have two activities today: Activity 1 - Explain the process of Henna and how it is applied to the hands/feet. This task is differentiated for the different literacy sets. If you need a quick reminder of how Henna is applied, please rewind the video. Activity 2 - Draw around your forearm and hand on a blank piece of paper to create your own Henna design! There are many different examples on the screen to use to help you. Extra challenge - you will notice that the women have symmetrical patterns on BOTH arms/hands. Can you have a go at drawing an identical pattern for your other hand?
