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!

For those topics that are not covered fully in the student textbook, Lesson Planet is a fantastic tool to find materials to complement the text and provide both additional instruction and reinforcement to the learning process.
