Earth Weaving

Leave a comment

3rd graders are finishing up their earth weavings. This project was inspired by @Mizzlee_art on Instagram.

We started by tracing a circle and painting the earth. Students used blue and green tempera cakes to paint the oceans and continents. They also painted a rainbow onto a separate piece of paper.

The next week, students cut out their earth circles and folded them in half. They used a ruler to make a mark every 2 inches. I went around and made the lines longer.

The unfolded paper creates a loom in which the rainbow lines can be woven. Students carefully made their lines go over-under-over-under to create a beautiful earth with a rainbow.

With a few minutes left at the end of class, students used their own bodies to weave! Some kids held strings while others went over-under-over-under.

This was a fun way to reinforce learning and get some wiggles out!
