Faith Ringgold Story Quilts by 2nd Grade. Students painted a place they would love to fly over and claim, like Cassie Lightfoot in the book Tar Beach. They added fabric borders and wrote a story around the edge. A digital photo of them flying was added to the sky.

Peter Hatcher in "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" is from NYC and Faith Ringgold is an artist from NYC. I could motivate a collaborative lesson about quilts and pattern or our local community.
