Why Lesson Planet?
Students listen to the song "I Didn't Raise My Boy to be a Soldier" from 1915 and write journal entries when and what the song was written about. They share their entries and discuss World War I. They compare the first song with "Over There" and complete a Venn Diagram about the two. For homework, they create a pro or against war poster. Groups pick one of the songs and create a PowerPoint presentation with images from World War I.
