LESSON

Caring for Hair

Among the characteristics that can take on meaning for young children is hair—hairstyles, hair texture and type. In this jigsaw activity, students will review information from brochures/websites about local hair care providers, interview a local hair care provider, synthesize the material, and teach it to others. Students will identify similarities and differences between the providers and gain a deeper understanding of diverse ways people care for their hair.
