Second grade Weaves

Today a second grade class looked at real woven baskets, a scarf from Nepal, and totes from Peru.  We reviewed Warp, Weft, and Loom. Then we recited a helpful saying," The secret to weaving is how you start." Alternating whether they began each row over or under the first warp, they quickly wove their baskets. Then they glued down the ends so as not to lose a weft strip later.
