First graders recognize patriotic songs of America. In this historical music activity, 1st graders discuss the historical background of the song "Yankee Doodle" and repeat the lyrics after the instructor. Students read the lyrics to the song "America" and use a flip-chart to memorize the words.
Give your class a deeper understanding of the context and meaning behind early American song lyrics. By reading the lyrics to "Yankee Doodle" and "Revolutionary Tea," high schoolers will practice analysis by examining the structure and figurative language used. Two thorough worksheets are included to guide reading.
Students illustrate a patriot song through a student created art slide show for a patriotic holiday event. They display their slide show in their Veteran's Day program. The words and pictures were choreographed to be together. This project is time consuming, but the results are well worth it.
