This is a fun hands-on project where students will work in groups analyzing historical conflicts through the lens of an artist through music, pictures, and video to compare and contrast why and how conflicts impact a nation.
• The students will analyze, interpret, infer and conclude how conflicts have shaped nations.
• They will complete a gallery walk, analyze a parody, videos and create a visual parody/skit explaining one of the conflicts that have shaped our world.
