Is it just me or do kids find weaving really, really difficult? I usually start the junior grades off with paper weaving before venturing into textiles but I feel like it takes many, many demonstrations for them to grasp!
Anyhow, this lesson also teaches line types, qualities and directional lines. I had the students rule up two pages, one with vertical lines and the other horizontal and then asked them to use a black marker to draw a different type of line inside each strip. Once the strips were cut, they wove their lines together and once they were finally complete they did look quite effective. This very cool lesson idea came from For The Love of Art.
