I found this lesson on a blog, I can’t remember which. My 3rd grade students enjoyed this project and it was good practice on basic weaving techniques. We used small plastic cups and cut from the top down into 7 sections. Any odd number will do but I thought 7 would be a good number for 3rd grade. Most of them struggled at first but got it after a few times around. A few still had big problems and needed a lot of help. Overall, they look pretty cool.
