As part of learning about the Pueblo Indians of the desert Southwest, we learned that these native people wove cloth on looms. This was our inspiration! I have an old Fisher Price loom that I found at a garage sale years ago. I have students take turns on this loom.
Some of my students brought in to school a lid from a shoe box. This was the basis for our loom. I cut slits in the two ends of the lid with a mat knife. Then the students
strung the warp strings of yarn.
Each student chose a color yarn to weave with. The weaving took off!
