Celebrating Our Diversity!

Directions for Cultural Identity Quilt

Due: Dec. 2

        At some point in your history, you or some members of your family came here from another country or countries. For this assignment, you will use the Internet, interviews with family members, and an atlas in your social studies textbook to find out more about your ancestors. You will use this information to create a square for a Cultural Identity Quilt.

        Your quilt square must include a picture of yourself. Also, use marker or colored pencil to fill the background of your square Then, choose five of the six options below to complete your square:
        1.      A picture/drawing of a map of your family’s country or countries of origin
        2.      The flag of your family’s country or countries
3.      A picture/drawing that represents a special tradition celebrated in your
country (perhaps a holiday)
        4.      Pictures/drawings of food that is unique to your family’s country
        5.      A picture/drawing of an important landmark in your family’s country
6.      A word or two written in the language of your family’s country

        We worked on a rough draft in class and students have a clean 9x9 square to complete their quilt square.
