    By shelli

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I am a librarian at an elementary school. I made the Coolest bulletin board to celebrate black history month. I picked the books, "under the quilt of night", "the secret to freedom", and "the patchwork path". They all have to do with a secret quilt code that the slaves would use to escape to freedom. So i made all the individual quilt patches and handed them out to the 4th and 5th graders and they each colored one and brought them back to me and we made a giant quilt . i hung up the book jackets and a title that said "celebrate black history" and "a quilt map to freedom. It turned out great.
