Students can create a quilt square for the classroom. Great "Get to know you" activity for the beginning of the year.
Directions: We are going to be creating a “classroom quilt”. You were given a square paper today. For homework, you need to design a symbol that describes YOU, brainstorm five words that describe you, and anything else that is “you”. Personalize it! You can write an aspiring quote, lyric, poem, etc.. Anything you want, as long as it represents who YOU are and what is important to you. Each square is going to be put into the quilt and together it will symbolize each person in your classroom. Make it colorful and creative! Your name needs to be somewhere on the front of the square.
