As sixth graders enter pre-adolescence, the handwork curriculum supports their new sense of self, depth of feeling, and independence. Students cultivate artistry, imagination, and focus through the creation of stuffed animals. Students create their own patterns and profile drawings, cut and sew their pieces of felt, and stuff for the final step. The result is a wonderful assortment of differently colored, shaped, expressioned animals, a composition that reflects the individuality of the children who made them.
