SHIVA Charity (UK) puts these free educational pages on its web site in order to be used primarily in Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Darjeeling, India, where lessons are mostly repetitive "chalk and talk" and curriculum restrained. We are involved in teachers' resources training there, and hope that schools in the UK and elsewhere will support SHIVA Charity's cause with funding. Please visit our main pages to see the work we do, and how we raise money for individual projects and for child sponsorship.
Weaving with coloured paper in the class room. This is a simple and effective way of introducing younger children to weaving, and it produces pleasing results.
Cut coloured paper into strips to make a frame.
Glue more coloured strips accross the frame, leaving a small gap between each strip.
Weave more strips one by one, and glue at the ends.
