Our next unit in art is going to be about weaving.



Please read the article




Weaving is a very ancient artform that is found in many cultures around the world. Some weaving is functional: People have used it to create clothing, baskets and even houses for centuries. Other weaving is decorational. (It's just there to look pretty.)


In some cultures, women have been the master weavers. (A great honor!) In others, men have been the master weavers of their villages or tribes.

Above is an example of a weaving. The wooden frame that it's on is called a loom. The threads that hold the weaving together are called "warp threads". These are very important. Without them, the weaving would fall apart.



and answer the questions below:

1. What has weaving been used for in the past?

2. Who could be the master weavers in different cultures?

3. What is the wooden frame that holds the weaving called?

4. What are the threads that hold the weaving together called?

The Phantom Tollbooth is one of my favorite books. In it, Milo (the main character) goes on an adventure through a wonderful world invented by the author. To help us understand this world, the illustrator drew a wonderful map, so that we could see all of the places Milo traveled.


You also get to create a map which represents your own personal world! Please answer the following questions in complete sentences.


1. In your map, what are three things that you think would make your world interesting, exciting, or just plain cool
2. Is there any place in your map that YOU would like to visit
3. What things or places would there be in your perfect world?
