What can you do with four straws and some yarn?
What can you do with four straws and some yarn? Create a colorful belt. Mrs. Jacob’s fourth graders at New Town Elementary school learned how to weave using straws. This was a culmination project of an informational text Art History unit.
The project gave the students the opportunity to understand and appreciate the power of art to tell stories, communicate ideas and promote understanding of the world around them. Through books, technology, artifacts and artist prints the students learned about their world from the beginning of time.
