4th Grade Kente Cloth
Kente Cloth is a traditional cloth woven on a loom in Ghana and the Ivory Coast. These African textiles inspired us to create our own Kente Cloth! After viewing a short video, the 4th graders learned how to make a symmetrical stencil by folding it in half, drawing their geometric shape, and then cutting it out. Using our stencil and tempera paint, we added our designs to our burlap in a 3 x 3 square. Students used a running stitch to add a border to their Kente Cloth. Thank you to Amy Clay for the lesson idea!
