We kick-started our latest Art Integration unit, Everybody Weaves, with a day of exploration. The unit, which will focus on weaving and storytelling in different cultures that coexist in Vermont, was inspired by a popular trend in the 4th grade at IAA: rainbow weaving with rubber bands. These images from Friday's class show students demonstrating weaving techniques as well as inventing new techniques together. Click on an image to enlarge it.
