Fourth-grade students at West Elementary School in Athens, Ohio, blended their study of the history of the Underground Railroad with an activity that allowed them to create a fabric quilt, an integration of the arts into social studies headed by veteran art teacher Theresa House. "By bringing the arts into the science project, or into the social studies project, you're reaching more of the different parts of the kids' brains," said House, who blends art into other subjects of the curriculum in two elementary schools. Other art teachers are doing similar work in middle- and high-school classrooms in the district.
