Imagine you are back in elementary school. What is the first memory that comes to mind? Are you drawing a picture of your pet? Are you playing your favorite game in gym? Are you working on fun projects? It is likely that the significant knowledge you gained was not reinforced through routine worksheets or standardized tests. Students recollect information more readily and clearly when their learning is engaging and fun. A great way to get students involved and engaged in learning is through arts integration. “Arts integration is an approach to teaching in which students construct and demonstrate understanding through an art form” (Silverstein & Layne, 2010, p. 1).
