In the center of Independence Square the Creatives are building the largest Story Quilt.

You walk forward, ready to tell your story and contribute your piece to the puzzle.

Basic shapes and Keynote will help you tell a story the length of a quilt.

The Steps.

Here is my story:

Open Keynote and start from a blank new template.

Next tap on the plus sign at the upper right hand corner and add some basic shapes from the Shape Library.

Select a shape and style it accordingly by tapping on the paintbrush.

TIP: Try experimenting with tables for lines. The screenshot below shows how I used a table for the flag background.

Share your end result.

Going Further.

Add animation or drawings to take your quilt to the next level.

This is one of the activities that educators can participate in during The Playground at ISTE.

If you are inspired to try this yourself, have a look at the resources I used:
