3rd grade color quilt

Color Themed Quilt Blocks


Use any lesson on color groups to collaborate with your class on a quilt that demonstrates their knowledge of your lesson.  In third grade, we discuss warm and cool colors.  Students picked their favorite group and raided the magazines to find interesting visual texture patches.  They worked within an area that allowed an inch border on paper that matched their theme.  In the end, it was a simple grouping on large roll paper that pulled the entire quilt idea together.

Here are a few close up images.
