The students heard a story each day relating to the topic of Westward Expansion during their listening block.

Traditionally, students would have written a summary of the lesson, but Cannella and Lazarz had other ideas.

“The kids got to complete a quilt square that highlighted the most important parts of the story, in writing, and then they illustrated a main character or important concept in the center of the square,” said Cannella.

The classes each used their paper patches to create a giant quilt on the bulletin board outside of their classroom.

Each student created a total of nine quilt squares.
