1st grade Paper Weavings

First graders created paper weavings using an over under pattern. We discussed how much of the clothing we wear is woven. The students got to see two types of looms and learned vocabulary words such as loom, warp, and weftOnce their weavings were finished the students used cut paper shapes to create interesting details on top.
