Introduce your elementary students to the art of weaving with this studio based lesson. This 2 day lesson can easily extend to 3 if you have the students try one of my suggested lesson extensions.
Everything you need to get started is included in this bundle. You will receive two professionally formatted lesson plans, one per week/session. These scripted lesson plans include relevant national visual art standards, objectives, supply list, anticipatory set, and lesson procedures (input, practice and closure). Teacher tips, interdisciplinary connections, and extensions are also noted where applicable.
I have included the 18-slide powerpoint presentation I use with my students. It features a motivating question to have students connect weaving to their everyday lives. There are some historical images of looms as well as a variety of patterns students may recognize. Also included are the step by step illustrations for reference or to photocopy and share at student tables. You’ll receive four advanced weave pattern pages to share. Lesson files are zipped for quick download and open as word docs so that you may update with your own district benchmarks or required elements.
Please do not hesitate to contact me before the sale with any questions. I’d love to see your results and hear feedback on what you liked or changed about the plans.
