Freedom Quilts

12/13/2011
During a recent unit of US History, third graders studied the topic of slavery in the South. They learned that Freedom Quilts served as "maps" to guide slaves on the Underground Railroad. As a group, each class created a quilt- One quilt creatively featured a unique SCDS campus map, while another displays a historical representation of items. Students also write narratives explaining the historical patterns and student perspectives on the history of slavery in the South. Stop by the Lower School's DuBose Media Center to view the beautiful and thoughtful student work!
