To learn, value, and appreciate the cultural similarities and differences in communities across Canada.
This activity can be interpreted in many different ways, and to that, we welcome all ideas. What we are looking for is a sign/symbol/drawing of what your class feels is important not only in their community, but also in their daily lives. This can include the plants, trees, animals, masks, clothes, etc. that are unique to your community, or family, friends, pets, etc. that are important in your students’ lives. Students can create their drawings using any medium – pencil, pencil crayon, paint, charcoal, pastel, etc. It can mounted on any type of background – whiteboards, paper, construction paper, walls, etc. as long as all of the quilt pieces are made of the same materials to keep the visuals coherent.
Once all students have completed their piece of the community quilt, the teacher will arrange all of the pieces in a quilt formation and take a picture of the student works.
This is not meant to be a difficult activity.
- Paper materials (construction paper/whiteboards/printing paper)
