Unit Overview 

Through performing a short play based on the book Quiltmaker’s Gift, the students gain practice in using the Arts to do something for the common good.

Service Experience 
Celebrate students artistic talents and find a way to share these talents with others. Follow your students’ voices to find an organization or group of people who would appreciate a performance, greeting card, or homemade piece of art to brighten their day or let them know someone cares. This may be soldiers, veterans, elderly people in a retirement home, or a local child with a serious illness.
