They also provide an opportunity to learn how to draw meaning from technical texts. The activities in this book push readers to read for comprehension, use information gained from the text and illustrations to follow step-by-step directions, determine relationships among steps in a technical process, and build the skills they need to make crafts using recyclable materials.If you wash a wool sweater in a washing machine, it will shrink. this is not good for your favorite sweater, but it is just what you want to do for this project! shrink an old sweater into a feltlike material. then use the new fabric to make mittens.
