4th Grade – Loom Weaving

4th Grade – Loom Weaving

Description of the Unit –

Students will practice simple loom weaving and create one small tapestry.

Activity statement –

In the California Visual Arts Standards, fourth grade students should experience using “fibers…to create a simple weaving,” (2.4, Creative Expression). Further, as students will be working on sewing samplers in fifth grade, they will benefit from this opportunity to develop their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. Finally, while practicing this simple weaving technique on a cardboard loom, students will reinforce their understanding of color and pattern via the design they choose to weave.
