The first class is spent designing the pillow and experimenting with the LED's and coin batteries to learn how circuits function. Students will make drawings to decide on the design and cut out parts needed. The final two classes are spent designing the circuit, sewing it into the pillow, stuffing and adding the decorative design. Interspersed throughout all four classes will be learning around the physics and understanding of electrical circuits. We'll use movement and experimentation to...
Students will gain a basic understanding of what makes electrical circuits work, learn how to create an electrical circuit, creative design experience, learn to sew, decorate and stuff a small pillow.
I've brought this project to schools, homeschool groups and online workshops. I've been sharing science/arts integration for my entire teaching career. The moment when students witness the LED lighting up their creation once they learn how to complete the circuit is always exciting. I present at national and local arts education conferences each year on topics related to inclusivity in arts education.
I send complete supply list, circuit pattern, and links to supply sources upon registration. Here's the basic list. Felt pieces Tacky Glue Stainless steel Conductive thread One 3mm or 5mm LED CR2032 Coin Battery Polyfill stuffing One Sewing needle such as -chenille #20 sharp end 10 sewing pins Embroidery floss Paper for drawing design and pattern pencil scissors that can cut fabric
4 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I will go over basic tips for threading and knotting needles, however learners should be able to do the following on their own. (Unless a parent is right on hand to provide assistance) Please be able to: Thread a needle both single and double threading. Knot the thread after threading the needle. Knot the thread on the fabric. If there are small children in the house, please note the the coin batteries are to be kept out of reach as they might look tempting and are toxic if swallowed.
