Students researched homes and shelters from around the world. With help from parents they each built a model home:We researched and discussed why some people don't have a home: lack of money, war, natural disasters.
As an action project, we made two twin size quilts for Child & Family Institute. Thanks Victoria for organizing this project!
Templates were made of the Yellow Brick Road pattern by Atkinson Designs. Students each designed two blocks. There was a music quilt and a beach quilt. Blocks were sewn together in the classroom.
Thank you so much Jennifer,(and your students!) for sharing your students and their work!
I love that quilting and sharing has reached these kids,
...and I wonder if any more of you peeps have taken to the school to teach kids to sew? Great stories here... Please share your experiences.
Have a GREAT Memorial weekend!
