We truly had an amazing experience at Lincoln Elementary School in Canton. All of the 4th graders have now completed their KidKnits hats! While in Canton, we had the opportunity to share with two different fourth grade classes the entire KidKnits curriculum. The students learned about world poverty, learned some Kinyarwanda, participated in an original play for KidKnits exploring life in Rwanda for some of the TVM widows before and after their employment making yarn, and learned how sheep’s wool is converted into yarn! Most importantly, through making their own hats with KidKnits yarn, each student made a difference in a life on the other side of the world.
We will be publishing a full report on this KidKnits pilot program. Please contact us with questions or for more information!
