Flag Quilt Block

I have my students make themed paper quilt blocks throughout the year. It's a great way to connect math (geometry), social studies, and art. I use the blocks as a bulletin board display. When I take down the display, I'm able to cut the blocks apart and send them home with the students.

Here's an example of a flag quilt block.

Each block has 1" squares that are glued onto a grid that has an array of blocks that form a flag. Each student makes a block and the blocks form a quilt block. The children use stickers, paint, stencils, and stamps to decorate the flag. 

The art activity can be used for patriotic holidays like Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July, Veterans Day, and Presidents Day.

Directions and a pattern are included in this Flag Quilt Block packet.
