Randall 3rd graders learned about who weaves and why people weave. They discovered that weaving is a part of many, many different cultures all over the world. Weaving is used for function (baskets, blankets, clothing), for beautiful artwork and for storytelling. We looked at many different weavings from many different cultures and talked about what made them similar and different.
Students then created their own stories and translated them to colors to weave.
Students learned MANY techniques from this video. Their favorite seems to be the Rya!
