Mrs. Sesterhenn from Savannah GA is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Weave Away!

My students need an assortment of yarn to do Inca weavings and Aztec gods eyes. We are learning about Latin American Indians through history, art and culture.

My Students

All grades K through 5, come to Spanish class on a 6-day rotation cycle. This means that every child in the school will get to enjoy this project! They love doing arts and crafts from other cultures to learn about the world near and far.

My kiddos want to explore everywhere; from their own little town, all the way to Argentina and Spain!

The past two weeks we have been learning about Peru, Machu Picchu, the Inca empire and llamas.

My Project

My students have been learning about Peru and how the economy is different than ours here in the U.S. In particular, they discovered how clothing is hand-made, using the resources that are natural to the Peruvian environment, such as llama wool and dyes from roots, vines, and insects.

We researched how llamas are shorn, their wool is dyed naturally and how the textiles are woven into brightly colored, all natural, man-made clothes, that are warm for the climate in the Ande Mountains.

The yarn purchased with this Donorschoose project will go toward small woven projects, so that students can learn hands-on, how much work hand-weaving is.
