Find out how sheep fleece is turned into wool yarn by hand, then show what you know in a 3-D shadowbox.
Did you know that sheep were the first animals to be domesticated by humans? Think about the things that sheep provide for people--wool, meat, and milk. What do people provide to sheep?
There are many steps between touching a woolly sheep and wearing a cozy sweater. Research how people converted raw wool into sweaters before they used today's machines. Visit an historic site that does sheep shearing to see the process first hand.
Cover your workspace with newspaper. Choose a recycled box or cardboard platform on which to create a 3D diorama of this historic procedure for making clothing. With Crayola® Washable Paint, Paint Brushes, and Crayola Washable Markers, create a landscape of the environment in which sheep live and graze such as mountains, hills, or farms.
Use large cotton balls to make sheep. If you wish to have sheep with black or brown fleece, color cotton balls with markers. Fashion sheep legs and heads using twigs, or use Crayola Scissors to cut chenille sticks. Use Crayola School Glue to hold sheep together.

Include in your display the tools used in the sheep shearing and wool preparation process. Draw or construct them out of collage items and recycled materials. Sheep shears clip the fleece off. Two wool carders, which look like dog-grooming brushes, clean
Wool is washed and may be dyed a color during this process, too. Weaving or knitting the yarn is the final step in this complex process to create clothing. Detail all of the steps of the process from sheep to sweater on a posterboard chart with Crayola Co
