MacBeth Garment Project Underway

Mr. Tahmaseb's 7th grade English class are creating garments for a character from MacBeth.  They are writing an argument to explain how their original design of the garment (pattern, fit, texture, color) supports their thesis about how the character should be interpreted. They are also making an original pattern by measuring the 16" wooden art models and transferring that information to graph paper. Next week: cutting their fabric from their patterns, learning how to use a sewing machine, and doing some hand sewing. The knowledge of MacBeth is impressive and the creativity is palpable.
