We are winding down the year with only 3 more weeks left! Where did the year go?

4th grade has been working on their last project, which is Paisley designs. Students learned all about the history of this unique fabric design. Did you know it is around 500 years old and began in Persia (modern day Iran)? Scottish soldiers took some back to their town called Paisley, Scotland. There the fabric became very popular and spread all over the world.

The design is based around a teardrop shape nicknamed the Persian Pickle. 4th graders love that name!
