Description: Music is present in every part of our lives. It’s one of the primary art forms that tap into our emotions, tell us stories, and shape the way we feel about and perceive the world around us. In this lesson plan, students will learn tips for creating and organizing a list-style article and write their own “Top Ten Picks” article about their favorite songs or albums.
How to Use: Students will need to listen, research, and consider their musical choices to write their article, so a device for connecting to the internet, and headphones will be required for this activity. It may require more than one class session to complete the writing assignment, or it may be completed as homework. The Google Slideshow to support this lesson is linked with the PDF.

Note: The language I use in my plans are geared towards teachers in a classroom setting, but these activities are adaptable to a homeschool setting too!
