Amendment XIX on the Virtual Refrigerator  - share your art posts on our Virtual Refrigerator - an art link-up hosted by Homeschool Coffee Break @

Welcome to the Virtual Refrigerator art link-up! Thank you for joining us as we share what we're creating in our homeschools. We cordially invite you to add your link sharing artwork that's on your Virtual Refrigerator and then hop over to the other blogs and admire what's on their Fridges too! The Virtual Fridge link-up is open all month, with anchor posts planned for each Wednesday.

In the American History class I'm teaching at the co-op, I'm trying to give assignment options other than just essays. So the student can choose either a short essay or an alternative like a class presentation or something artistic. This week we are studying the Constitution and Bill of Rights, so the assignment was either a short biography of one of the founders who signed the Constitution or a piece of artwork that illustrated one of the Amendments in action. Not surprisingly, Kennady chose the artwork assignment (exactly as I'd hoped, since it provided me with something for the Virtual Fridge!)

Here is her illustration of the 19th Amendment, ratified August 18, 1920.

The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on the account of sex.
Congress shall have the power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Amendment XIX in Action by Kat, October 2018

The vote is the emblem of your equality, women of America, the guarantee of your liberty. . . That vote has been costly. Prize it! The vote is a power, a weapon of offense and defense, a prayer. Understand what it means and what it can do for your country. Use it intelligently, conscientiously, prayerfully. ~Carrie Chapman Catt, suffragist and founder of the League of Women Voters
Now all we need is to continue to speak the truth fearlessly, and we shall add to our number those who will turn the scale to the side of equal and full justice in all things. ~Lucy Stone, suffragist, orator, and abolitionist

I love that you are giving the children choices rather than just writing assignments.

That's a fabulous idea. I've been listening to Dr C. Leaf new book Think, Learn, Succeed and this is one of the things she talks about. Allowing ourselves and our students the choice of how to express our own learning.

Lovely drawing and it communicated well what was learned.

Great art work and a wonderful way of expressing what she learned.

This is a good representation. I like the idea of doing posters - I did something similar when I was teaching AP US II.

I like her rendition of it. It works.
