Students select a song they like and in small groups create original lyrics to the tune of the song they have chosen. They discuss rhyme, rhythm, and tune, write their lyrics on a large chart, and perform the song for the class.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
