I love bringing a range of projects to students.  I wasn’t sure what students’ reactions would be the first time I tried this project, but so far every student has been engaged and excited to learn how to weave.  Its an amazing process that comes from ancient civilizations! This particular fourth grade class was learning about California Native Americans who wove baskets among other things.  We used neutral and warm colors on our cardboard “looms” to mimic the color schemes we traditionally see with naturally dyed materials.
