Weaving

I chose the activity of weaving because it was a multistep project that required the children to always work together. First we had to cut and measure the recycled card board, and then the kids helped thread the twine through the holes. Once the weaving boards were ready I provided the children with various strips of cut cloth and ribbon. There were only half the amount of weaving boards and children, and so each child had to wait for the board to be passed to them, or they could choose to work together and weave at the same time. I found that the children were more interested in doing it together, and because of the difficulty of weaving through the twine, they also had to ask one another for help with fixing the fabric and ribbon when it got tangled. This project really focused on hand and eye coordination, as well as teamwork and strategy planning.
