Beautiful Mosques

Check out these gorgeous mosques my students made for Ramadan. The sunsets here are quite gorgeous so we decided that chalk pastels and watercolors would look great for the backgrounds.

This is a lesson you can adapt in many ways. Instead of a silhouette mosque how about a city skyline? trees? garden? dinosaurs? The possibilities are endless!

What do you think?

These ones were done by my grade six boys. I wanted to review lines with them so they divided their mosque into sections and filled them up with interesting lines and dots. The mosques were cut out and pasted onto a watercolor sunset background the boys made.

  1. I absolutely LOVE these! I teach my 4th graders about mosques later in the year, and I cannot WAIT to try these! Last year they drew their own mosques, colored with colore pencil, and embellished them with gold paint and jewels, but these will be something fun and new. Thanks for sharinf the wonderful ideas!
