3rd grade - Spiral Weavings

3rd grade students created radial (spiral) designs by using a paper plate as a loom. Students learned about weaving techniques and terminology, cultures that use weaving and answered questions of why do we weave and what is weaving. The students looked at radial designs all around us in nature and used colorful patterning in creating their weaving. After the weaving was completed, they turned their weavings into decorative art by making a wall hanging.
