My take on Military history month stems from my current grandson serving in the U.S. Marines overseas. I thought about how my students could and would honor those who have served in our own history that we have recently studied about. It does not matter if it’s the American Revolution, The French Indian War, the War of 1812, The War for Texas Independence, the Civil War, Spanish American War, First World War, Second World War, or any of the other wars the state or U.S. has fought in.
I don't take off for my student's art skills. Just because I have an Art degree also does not matter. I'm here for their 'try' not their 'do'. You do what you feel is right at this time of the year.
I have used this as extra credit when needed.
