6th graders took a trip to the Living History farms earlier this year and have been learning about Iowa history in their social studies class. To connect with what they are learning in social studies, we looked at quilting and barn quilts as part of Iowa history and tradition. Students are making their own quilt block design and then painting it on watercolor paper. We hope to have to time to do some stitching with yarn on it as well.
