Interactive video lesson plan for: Jungle Loom Operation - Smarter Every Day 10

Activity overview:


I'm now on Twitter: http://bit.ly/SmarterED and Facebook http://on.fb.me/jStNg1

While walking across a small jungle village I noticed this lady weaving cloth. I became instantly fascinated and commissioned her to make me a bolt of cloth. I asked for the brightest colors possible like a rainbow (for my daughter) and asked for permission to video her work. She worked for about a day and a half. I filmed this in the afternoon of the first day. If you look closely at the end of the video you can almost see the pride in her eyes that I'm taking such interest in her craft.

Notice the child with an umbilical hernia in the background.

A buddy of mine from Canada did the music. He's pretty sharp with the tunes and can crank out customized songs pretty quickly. I emailed him some sounds from my trip to Africa and he made the intro song out of them. If you're interested here's how to get in touch with him:
