Step 1: Discuss the diversity and various cultures in the classroom, city, and world
Step 2: Each student should have an 8 inch square of paper. They should draw an image or collage that represents an aspect of their cultural background. This could be a symbol, custom, flag, value, etc.
Step 3: At the end, all the students will piece their part of the quilt together to create on giant one. Using a hole punch and yarn you can tie each patch together and display the quilt.
Step 4: Discussion
- How many different cultures are represented in the classroom?
- What ties us together as Americans?
- Ask the students what their square represent
Reflection: We mounted the white paper drawings onto colored construction paper to make the quilt stronger and more patchwork looking.
