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.
