[room 209m] heritage quilts

February 8, 2018

We’ve been celebrating African American Heritage Month this February at school. Aside from all the reading we’ve been doing, the art teacher at my school (who is awesome) taught the students about quilts. During slavery (and other times) families would make quilts and pass them down each generation in their family. Some families still have these super old quilts. Other families have created newer ones that are just as amazing and tell stories. While the art teacher wasn’t actually going to teach my students how to quilt, she did neat quilting projects with various classes at my school. The students worked on combining shapes, colors, and patterns. They also talked about symmetry. What a fun and relevant project for the class!
