Sheep are not just for the barnyard: they can be wooly fun in the classroom as well. This curriculum unit includes simple poetry, fluffy arts and crafts, musical fingerplay, a page of word problems, and a wool science experiment. Of special interest are the home arts pages that outline how to turn raw wool into a finished product by washing, dyeing, and spinning. There is even an inexpensive loom lesson for the adventurous at heart. This unit is best suited for younger elementary classes. The website links on the resources pages are no longer working.
