This lesson plan is designed for Thai students in grades 4-6 and focuses on cultivating an understanding of the intricate craft skills required for wood carving and decorative patterns. Students will delve into the historical context of wood carving patterns, leading to thoughtful discussions about the processes, meanings, and cultural significance of these traditional crafts. Teachers will actively engage students in the design and hands-on carving of personalized wood patterns, fostering not only an appreciation for preserving and passing on traditional culture but also instilling a sense of belonging to their community. Through this hands-on approach, students will develop a tangible connection to their cultural heritage and a deeper interest in preserving traditional craftsmanship.
