Help your students tell the treacherous journey across the Middle Passage with this visual art activity. Students represent one part of the Middle Passage in visual form. After all students in your classroom have represented their section of the quilt, combine the sections together in sequential order to tell the story of the Middle Passage. This activity is very moving and reflective for students and helps them understand the struggle of the Middle Passage. A writing activity is included for students to explain their quilt piece and a grading rubric is attached for student expectations and easy teacher assessment. A fun and unique way to teach a sensitive topic!
