Sixth graders at Center Moriches Middle School have stepped into the role of fashion designers during family and consumer science class. Within their fashion unit, students studied draping and were tasked with working in small groups to create an outfit. They stepped into the library makerspace to assemble their pieces. Many sixth graders used fabric to create their clothing, whereas others used common materials such as newspapers.
Once in the library, students used Book Creator to design their own fashion look-books. Book Creator is a platform that gives students the opportunity to create digital content. Students organized their look-books and even included a statement about their collections.
This interdisciplinary project brought together a family and consumer science unit with the resources available in the middle school library. Students were eager to make their own creations and easily share them with Book Creator.
