Craft: Geometric Quilts

A fun and easy way for a class to make a quilt together!

  • Grades: PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8

Classroom Quilts

Quilt and study geometry at the same time! Kids glue geometric paper shapes to individual construction-paper squares, then tape squares together for a class quilt.

What you'll need:
Colored Paper

1 Cut shapes from colored paper before class. 

2 Let students map out patterns on a separate square sheet of paper using the shapes.

3 Glue patterns in place with a glue stick. 

4 Tape all "quilt squares" together to create a large quilt.

5 Photograph students in front of their quilt!
