K Paper Quilts
The Kindergarteners learned about the history of quilts for this lesson on symmetry and shapes. We discussed how a quilt can be hung up and used as a work of art or it can be a blanket and used for warmth. A quilt usually has more than one layer (usually three) and we compared it to a hamburger! The top layer is what is decorated. The Kindergarteners did a great job placing a shape, letter or line in the same space in each quilt square. We discussed symmetry and their world was opened to new symmetrical things! Check out these amazing paper quilts!
