Weaving our identities togetherPosted by Krissy Ponden
Inspired by Mary March’s Identity Tapestry installations, the sixth graders created their own mini version to represent their class. We brainstormed a list of identifying statements such as “I like to read” and “I think the world needs more peace” and then students chose the ones they felt best represented them and their class as a whole. They decorated cards with the statements and we attached them to a bulletin board. To create the tapestry, students each chose a color of yarn, started at the top, and “wove” their way through the statements they wanted to identify with, ending at “I am unique” at the bottom. It was a fun and creative bonding experience for the class, and seeing the finished tapestry reminds us all that we have more in common than we may think!
