1st grade- Paper Basket Weaving

First grade will learn that weaving is used to create functional art.  Weaving can be used to make many things, like rugs, clothing, and baskets.  Students will cut their looms and learn to weave on it.  We will use an over-under pattern to weave.  We will turn our weavings into a paper basket.

Here is how baskets are traditionally made:

  • What materials do these artists use to make their weavings?
  • What functional art do they make from their weavings?
  • What makes basket-weaving challenging?
