This is a STEAM project. Students complete Explicit Direct Instruction on patterning skills that use real objects (up to AAB, ABC and ABB patterns). They will design a necklace, make it and critique their necklace. Teachers can extend this activity to look at resources and materials used to create the necklace, cultures that wear necklaces and necklaces that carry cultural significance. Students can also, as part of the art curriculum, reflect on their necklace and provide feedback to peers. As an extension activity, students can cost the materials required, look in shopping catalogues and decide on a fair price.
