During the next few months, our entire school will be learning about South America and its rich cultural heritage. My third graders' specific country of study will be Chile, and I am looking forward to exploring this fascinating country with them. Among other things we will be studying Chile's economy, examining its imports and exports. One of the major exports of Chile is alpaca wool. Although we will be learning about the way of living of all different kinds of Chileans, I want to concentrate specifically on the products produced and sold to our country. To help my students better understand the value of Chile's exports, I would like to teach my students to knit with alpaca yarn. Knitting is a skill taught to me by my mother, and I would now like to pass it on to my students. As the students learn to knit, we will make scarves for the needy in our community. Thus we will be serving others while learning valuable lessons about natural resources, handicrafts, and helping those who are less fortunate. I have nineteen students who will need needles as well as yarn for this project. As part of the project, we will also concentrate on the life skills that make us a true caring community (patience, caring, sharing, and helping others).
