Community Story Quilt

In this three day lesson I taught as a student teacher at John Lyman School, first and second graders gained insight into the idea of a "community identity." Together the class wrote a story based on a typical day in their own classroom community. Each child then created a mixed media quilt piece illustrating a part of that story. When the quilt was pieced together, the story came alive!
