Consolidation:

 

Take a picture of a project you created and post it to module twelves discussion. What did you like about this experience? How would you modify, extend or use this experience for learners in the classroom? How might you use weaving as a provocation to allow students to make connections with different cultures in Canada and across the world? What might you like to try next?
