This project can tie back to Ohio 8th grade and HS American History standards. I didn't necessarily put a focus on that for this project as much as used the history (pride, historical importance, etc.) as a framework to assist in the design and execution.
In reality if we wanted to, we could tie this project to Ohio History which is a 4th grade course/standard. Part of the inspiration of this project came from a Ohio History quilt project that some of our teachers used to do.
