3rd and 4th Grade Art
Because the students missed a few classes because of Mondays out of school, we have jumped right into the curriculum. We are currently learning weaving techniques. The students are learning about the culture of Mesopotamia in their homeroom and I wanted to impress on them the difficulty of having to weave functional wares as the Mesopotamian people did. I felt making a basket would be a difficult process, so I set on pot-holders to teach the basic weaving technique. I also love to make pot-holders! The students are mostly getting the hang of the process and soon we will move to weaving some of the long grasses found on the school property.
