Lesson Plan

Songs of America

Combine your lesson on patriotism with a lesson on comparing and contrasting. Focusing on The Star Spangled Banner, Take Me Out to the Ballgame, and The Old Folks at Home, this lesson prompts learners to compare and contrast each song using a Venn Diagram. They discuss the historical meaning and significance of each song, and then sing each one. Resource links and follow-up activities are included.
