The State and Region Quilt Patterns download is excellent for use as a project and as an alternative for chapter / unit reviews. The download includes maps for all 50 states plus 8 region maps. The regions are divided as follows - New England, Middle Atlantic, Southeast, Great Lakes, Plains, Southwest, Mountain, and Pacific.
Have you students color and label the state or region. Then have them use the four corners of the quilt to illustrate what they have learned about the state or region.
Great as a review tool, the quilt patterns make an attractive and informative bulletin board. Run the patterns on card stock to make
a durable display.
