Kente Cloth in the Media Center?

Posted by Laura Losch on March 12, 2009

That’s right! Today Mr. Bagwell’s 7th grade classes are making traditional Ghanan Kente cloth as a part of their unit on Africa – in the media center! I read to the students the story of The Spider Weaver, maker of Kente cloth, then we all made our own pattern of cloth using construction paper. I was so excited about how good these turned out that I wanted to share right away! I’ll post some more pictures later when I get these hung up in the library! But here’s a sneak peak! Enjoy!
