Circle Weaving

Forth graders learned about the craft of weaving in Colonial Virginia in this lesson.  They brainstormed example of weaving in their every day life & utilized previous knowledge of radial design in art. .  Because of time constraint, I prepared the looms for them along with the help of a parent volunteer! They learned about important vocabulary with weaving such as the loom, warp, and weft! 

Students chose 3 colors of yarn to in their weaving.   The hardest part was getting started.  Once they figured out the over, under, over, under pattern they were on a roll!

After the loom was full, they used markers to decorate extra room on their paper plate.
