Non-Fiction, Lesson Plan

Description:

In this unit of three lessons, from EDSITEment, students recognize how people from different cultures and time periods have passed down the tradition of quiltmaking. Students research how art and history are connected through quilts and explore the purposes and uses quilts served in different places and cultures in the past. Navigate to This External Web Link: http://edsitement.neh.gov/view_lesson_plan.asp?id=241 I discovered this link on Curriki, while looking for lessons to do with textiles, especially quiltmaking. The difference in what the originator planned for this lesson is based upon the premise of using a suggested literary resource Follow The Drinking Gourd, as a springboard to looking more recent examples of quilts that are important in the children\'s lives and my life.
