AFRICAN AMERICAN QUILTS

Head to the southern U.S. states where quilters continue to improvise sewn patterns passed down for generations, from the times of slavery and the Underground Railroad.  Use math, geometry and your imagination to create a cooperative quilt and wall-hanging with up-cycled paper or fabric scraps.  Display as a whole made of many parts!

Best for ages 5 and up

60 minutes with slideshow, artifacts, and hands-on activity
