This is a great side project to add to Social Studies classes while learning about other countries around the world.

    I have done a less detailed design version of this lesson with print making! Students have to decide simple shape, lines, colors and type of technique that would work on fabric to reproduce a lot. We experimented on paper, but I would like to make an actual fabric version some day!
