Discover Nebraska

Honoring Nebraska Through Quilts

Discover Nebraska is a Quilting/Social Studies Unit geared to 4th graders studying Nebraska History. Our committee members are volunteers from the Lincoln Quilters Guild. The finished project is a paper quilt to hang in the classroom. The program is free. It requires a two-hour block of uninterrupted time. After a forty-five minute presentation to all the 4th graders in a central room (usually Media Center), the students and a volunteer go to their classrooms to color and piece the paper quilt and then return to the presentation room to show their class quilt. We close with a review that reinforces the material presented and show our "current" quilting projects.

An exciting option is to have your Discover Nebraska presentation at the International Quilt Study Center and Museum with a tour of current exhibits. Contact Sheila for all the details.
