Teaching wet felting to grade 3 and 4 students - finale

The wet part of the felting is all done!  I went to the class for the last time last week and helped some children finish off their work.  It was an end of term session where children could finish off any work they had.  Only a few wanted to thread the beads onto the cords.  It was quite hard to get the cord through the needle and into the balls, especially as the cords were of varying thicknesses.  But we managed. Wooden beads added to the effects.
As you can see, some of the children had planned well and had made a coloured balls that would make a pattern.  Others were happy with the randomness of what they had made.
