Geometry, Patchwork Quilts, and Native American Culture

Use geometric principles to analyze North American quilt patterns. Learners review the concept of area, perimeter, and symmetry. They explore the importance of the star in quilting and conduct research on Morning Star quilts using the Internet. This lesson would be great for an Open House or Math night!
