Product Description
This is an activity that I created for my American History class that can be done in the classroom or in the computer lab (need access to YouTube).

Students listen to 6 songs (titles listed below) and are to analyze the songs in a graphic organizer and then complete a reflection. They should be able to compare and contrast the lyrics/tones from some of the popular songs of the 1970s. Then I follow up the activity with a discussion about the music/tones/lyrics.

Lyric sheets are provided for each of the 7 (Included an extra song - students still only have room on the chart for 6 songs) songs:
"Dancing Queen" - ABBA
"Stairway to Heaven" - Led Zeppelin
"Superstition" - Stevie Wonder
"Imagine" - John Lennon
"Bohemian Rhapsody" - Queen
"Stayin Alive" - Bee Gees
"I Will Survive" - Gloria Gaynor

Great follow up YouTube clip:
