    Hi there. We our ending our unit on astronomy and will be starting our new unit on heritage. I found a fun project on OpenCourtresources on making a heritage quilt.


    Now, I'm trying to think of what kind of things they should put on their quilt. I want to give them some good ideas for when I give them the assignment. I'm thinking:
    name of country and drawing of flag where family is from
    traditional food
    celebrations
    where their name came from and what it means

    That's all I can think of. Any ideas on what else they could include in their quilt?

    We do something similar to a quilt but it is a heritage album. It pretty much includes all of the elements that will be included in your quilt. Last year we wrapped up the unit with a Heriatge feast. If you search the forum, I remember posting the details about it.

    Oh, I also have the kids make cultural paper dolls. Afterwards, I link all the dolls together so it looks like they are joining hands.

    I love the cultural heriatage dolls. I remember seeing that before when you posted this picture way back then. I'll have to do that too.
