Kente Cloth

Second grade students learned about Africa through power point. They looked at the African Kente cloth and discovered that art can be worn. We discussed the process of creating a Kente cloth and how the men in Ghana are the ones who do the actual design making and weaving. Students got to choose the colors they wanted as they wove their Kente "cloth" with an over and under pattern of movement.
