I found the images on this site both offensive and disturbing. I find it hard to believe that you showed them to 3rd grades. The idea of the huge hamster in a variety of famous situations is humorous and clever but as I scrolled down I realized that they trivialize 9-11, the loss of life in Afghanistan, assassination etc.
What message are you sending?

Subject: K weaving?
I will be weaving paper w/ K very soon and was wondering if anyone has
any advice. I did it last year(my first year) and remember it as a
struggle, but I will break it down into simpler steps this year. About 22
kids (no aide) will be using 12x3 strips on an open ended paper 12x18 loom.
We will create our own patterns on the strips first with construction paper
I'm just checking for any suggestions before we begin.??
By the way- I am doing giants with third graders and they love the idea. I
have a lot of very interesting giants including animals and a walking paper
