This The Star-Spangled Banner lesson plan also includes:
Get your kids moving as they learn about the history of the United States National Anthem. Scholars examine the War of 1812, Francis Scott Key, and the meaning behind The Star Spangled Banner as they listen to an 18-minute podcast...while walking. Of course, you could have scholars listen to this sedentary, but incorporating walking is fantastic if you have the technology for it! Also, it is referenced throughout the rest of the instructional activity. Once finished, they discuss highlights and share opinions. There is a comprehension quiz included to test listeners' recall and inference skills.
