Weaving Paper Plates
"The Weaver" by Thacher Hurd was my inspiration for this project. 3rd Grade students learned about weaving, folk art and expressive art - art that is created to show feelings, mood and emotions.
After reading the book, students created their own weaving using a paper plate to express themselves. We also discussed symmetry and patterns...which were incorporated into the designs of their plates.
