4th Grade Straw Weavings

A first timer project here for me. The 4th grade curriculum says they should do a fiber weaving. I decided to use straws and fun colors of yarn. I googled 'straw weaving' and found pretty clear directions. I started off step by step slow to being with but this project was either a jump out success for some or an ultimate struggle for others. It surprised me how some classes had no problems and in other classes hands were up everywhere. I almost needed an assistant. This took us 3 class periods and I thought the end projects actually looked really good. The kids are going to used them as book marks.
