Art is a powerful way to express one's feelings. Integrating art with social studies allows our future teachers to find creative ways to connect with history. Future elementary social studies teachers, enrolled in ELED 360: K-8 Social Studies Methods course, in fall 2016, created artwork to honor veterans.
There were 40 pieces of artwork in total. The artwork were all silent auctioned. All proceeds were donated to the VFW post 3061 in Vermillion, South Dakota, to aid the its missions in supporting education and disabled veterans.
