Brief Description

In this semi-glyph activity, students share their interests and characteristics by making patches about themselves. The patches are then pieced together to make a class quilt for a wall or bulletin board. The quilt serves as a jumping stone for many other activities.


Students share information about themselves, then compare and graph the results.
