and it was only fair that we do something special together, since he had to be so quiet all week while I was on Zoom all day long in my training!
In all honesty, lots of bonus projects were also shared with us. It is so so temptingly easy to post a video to Google Classroom! But since I went right from this training week into opening up our school in-person on March 1st, had to focus on adapting to an Outdoor Classroom, and taught up until the week before my new training session began, I didn't do any of the extras.
extra project ideas & videos included:
collaborative knitted & crocheted farmyard (each student does a square)
knitted & crocheted garden with bunnny & carrot
mini knitted farmyard with sheep finger puppet
sheep shearing shadow puppet show with marionettes
how to tie a heart-shaped Celtic knot
self-striping rainbow ball
instructions for mordanting cellulose fiber
beeswax wood finish recipe
watercolor painting tutorials
