Basket Weaving May 22, 2009

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 9:38 am

The third graders are learning the patient art of basket weaving.  Looking at Native American examples of the highly skilled art form, the students can note the difference between coiled, plaited, and wicker splint techniques of weaving.  Mr. Macomber’s class is creating the wicker style baskets and Mrs. Roderick’s class is working on coiled baskets.

Some photos of the students at work:
