Felted Puns for 6th graders
For my mid term lesson plan, I created an activity where 6th graders could explore wet and dry felting techniques while creating two felted objects that are puns. Using Chic Thompson’s “many, varied and unusual things,” I would have students respond to a prompt such as: what are the many varied and unusual things you can associate with wool? This includes wool, sheep farms, shearing, spinning yarns etc. Then I would ask them to brainstorm a list of puns, wool related or not, in order to come up with their two punny objects.
