Now this sounds like a fun lesson! Youngsters learn about pioneer life and the Westward Movement. First, they listen to the Copland's "Appalachian Spring," and then they discuss the elements of music found in the piece. They get into small groups and create short claymation films that show pioneers moving west. "Appalachian Spring" will act as the background music for each of the short films.
