Eighth grade students created Native American Wampum Beaded Belts. After finishing their Navajo inspired woven rugs students were introduced to another type of weaving. They used the iPad app called "Make a Mosaic" to design their belts before using the beads. This app allows them to repeat it symmetrically to see the pattern. The belts are 2" x 12" and they used their old weaving chipboard looms to hold the warp thread. Wampum is a really great site for further instructions and information on the belts.
