Paper weaving Activity

Environmental Science is an interesting subject with variety of topics concerning our day to day life. We do our best to make the concepts clear by doing hands on activities. One such topic is making of cloth (WEAVING). Weaving is a method of textile production in which two distinct sets of yarns or threads are interlaced at right angles to form a fabric or a cloth. To clear this concept, grade II children did the paper weaving activity. The whole weaving process was taught by the teachers using two papers which were cut into strips. The strips of paper were woven together to form a mat. The students finally coloured their hand made mats, decorated and laminated them. All the students thoroughly enjoyed this activity and worked with great enthusiasm.
