Stories and symmetry
(grades 1–3)

Doris Waddell created quilts woven with memories of her family. The short video and accompanying lesson plan are filled with imaginative activities that draw from the ideas of family and design.

This video is accompanied by a lesson plan geared towards elementary school students grades 1–3.

AGNES Learns is a digital resource for children and families. Artworks from the Agnes collection inspire fun ways to explore, understand and get creative.
