Here we go:
You can make your own weaving frame. Take the black pasteboard and cut it to the shape of the template. You need to make a weaving shuttle as well. You can make it from a piece of pasteboard which you wrap with wool and let it slip through the strained ribbons. (variation: the frames can be prepared before you start the experiment).
When you finished the frame you can strain white ribbons on it. (it makes sense to have one prepared frame as an example). Now you can start weaving by letting the shuttle slip alternating over and under the strained ribbons. The ribbons have to be tensed. If you need help ask your classmates or an adult.
