Navajo Rug Collage (2nd Grade)

I searched far and wide for a lesson plan online of a Navajo inspired collage....couldn't find anything. I didn't want to close out the weavings without really discussing where weaving essentially comes from. So I showed several images of Navajo weavings and we talked about symmetry, geometric shapes, patterns and contrast.
I love what the kids came up with for their "symmetrically balanced Navajo rug collages".
