Sherrell Cuneo's 6th grade daughter and friends (Bethany, Cameron, Stephanie and Becca) sewed a 3' x 6' quilt panel as part of a quilting project that Sherrill is spearheading called "Sew the SEEDS: Saving Earth's Endangered and Diverse Species."
Children from Ms. Linda Harada and Ms. Aileen Rabina's 6th grade homeroom classes at Thomas Starr King Middle School in Los Angeles all got to learn about endangered species like the leatherback sea turtle.
In addition to making the quilt panel, they learned how to write a persuasive letter to editors and public representatives, make mini documentaries and public service announcements and learn about biomes, food chains and food webs and their importance to species.
