In the Classroom: Cherokee Weaving

Kerstin Davis subbed for Mr. Grindstaff at Burnsville Elementary School. His 4th graders have been studying Cherokee Indians and had recently visited a Cherokee village. Kerstin talked to the students about the Cherokee weaving tradition and how they wove baskets, and also belts and blankets from plant fibers. She then had them do a simple weaving project on stick looms while she read aloud to them from a book about The Trail of Tears.
