The Grade Four Carpet Factories


Preparing for the Carpet Factories

The Grade Four students spent a couple of afternoons creating carpets and brick walls to make our classes look like carpet factories.
Some of the designs that students created were ones that they learned about during the reading of 'Iqbal.'    

The Day We Spent in Our Carpet Factories



The students dressed up in old, dirty clothing to help replicate an actual carpet factory.




There were black slates that kept a tally of the debt their families owed.

The students tied knots to get a feeling of what it would be like to tie knots for carpets.
Mrs. Klinger brought in some authentic food for the students to eat.
