Navajo Weaving


4th grade experimented with weaving in our Native American art unit while looking at the artworks of the Navajo people. These kids got to experiment with circle weaving last year with our Van Gogh Sunflowers and this one was actually a little easier. 

After we added string, we colored the rest with Sharpie markers. Some students chose to stick to natural colors to emulate real Navajo weaving, but others couldn't stay away from bright colors. Either way, they are great!
