Week 2

This week students learned about where some of their clothing comes from. We made the connection that sheep’s wool produce some sweaters and socks. To help students understand this process, I read, “From Sheep to Sweater” by Robin Nelson and “Woolbur” by Leslie Helakoski.

Fun for Week 2

We passed around roving to feel. So soft!

Finally, students came together to make me a sweater and pair of wool socks!

Such a fun week! Thank you for being partners in Sheep Shearing! If you are local and would like to see a professional sheep shearing, the Critter Barn is having their 25 Anniversary Family Round-Up this Tuesday evening. This is an awesome family event!  Baa Baa!
