During February, for Black History Month, the first-grade class at Hodgesville Elementary learned about many famous black American including Harriet Tubman, Ruby Bridges, Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King. They also learned about the secret code of the Underground Railroad. They tried to be good at symmetry and colored the different quilt squares while learning the meaning of each. The school principal brought in a quilt that she had made, which had the secret code quilt designs on it, so that they could see them in a real quilt. Parents also were invited to see this quilt and their children explained what they had learned. Here is one of the students coloring an example of a quilt square pattern.
