Celebrate the U.S. flag with this math art project! I love quilts. I especially love making paper quilts with my students. They make such beautiful displays on bulletin boards or walls.

In my quest to make as many quilts as possible, I have turned to math, holidays, and seasons for inspiration. This product is a U. S. Flag themed quilt square, making it appropriate for Memorial Day in May, Flag Day in June, Independence Day in July, the birthday of the Star Spangled Banner in September, Veteran's Day in November, and any other day that you want to celebrate the U.S. flag!
I created it with three different math levels to allow for differentiation. It includes single-digit addition, double-digit addition, and single-digit multiplication, making it ideal for first through fourth grade. I also added a blank quilt square for students that need further differentiation.
Directions: Because the U.S. flag colors must be red, white, and blue, students will choose only two of their own colors to work with, which still allows each quilt square to be unique, making a beautiful quilt display for your classroom. Students then choose which color goes with each sum or product, and color the quilt square according to their choices. Then cut out each square and place on the wall or bulletin board!
I hope that this Quilt Square Math project is one that your class will enjoy as much as mine has!
