I took myclass to the farm to study natural fibers today. It was a most excellent adventure. Though I'm not comfortable posting images of the students' faces, here are a few cute pictures of their day.
Say Cheese! or "Hay"!
The kids had a tour of the farm before we had our lesson.
Some had never seen goats up-close and personally before, and Louie was a big flirt.

Kathy provided a wonderful power-point on wool, as well as hands-on experiences with pulling, carding, felting and spinning. It was a great day! I truly believe authentic experiences are so much more valuable than simulations or theory.
Thank you, Kathy. We had a wonderful experience.
