History is Alive :: Weaving
Our history took us to Medivel India. We talked a little bit about the areas of India, the desert, the mountains, the river villages. We talked about the people who lived in the mountains. How they had to live in harsh conditions. How the weather in such high mountains was so cold. We talked about the kind of clothes people in those mountains would need and we weaved our own cloth see what that would be like. The activity book lead me through making them little looms and then the kids spent as much or as little time as they wanted weaving their cloth. #2 is the only one who stuck with it long enough to get an actual piece of cloth out of the deal but it was a fun exercise.
