War memorials are a combination of art and history, and engage students in the reflection and analysis of war.
Take your students on a trip to the Vietnam War Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Marine Corps Memorial, and the USS Arizona! This resource has everything you need to give students a better understanding of the reason for the memorials, who built them, where they are located, and how they inspire and uplift us.
There is nothing like the awe of seeing these four memorials up close and in person, but sometimes that isn’t always possible. If unable to take field trips, use this resource as a virtual field trip!
