Weaving Overview

Weaving can be a great way to integrate math, art, and social studies content areas. But lots of teachers are weary of trying to teach this technique to students.

Don’t be intimidated by this fantastic medium. Students can weave using lots of different materials: traditional yarn, paper, even grass! The skill of weaving helps with hand/eye coordination, dexterity, concentration, and creativity. Measurement and planning connect right back to math standards. Plus, because so many cultures use weaving as part of their artistic expression and practical everyday living, it a wonderful doorway into a variety of social studies concepts.
