Preparation

Get a large paper grocery sack for each student.

Have the students cut along one side of the bag and cut the bottom off of the bag. The students are left with a large rectangle of paper. Demonstrate how to crinkle, crush, rub, and smash the paper to make it as soft as possible. Perhaps have a contest to see who can turn their bag into the softest leather.

Options -

Once the bag has been turned into leather the student could make a vest.

Have students write Indian symbols on their leather.
