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). **UPDATED on 6/28/20: This activity is available in the following formats: Microsoft Word, Google Docs, and PDF. Fun distance learning enrichment activity that students will engage with.
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 lyrics/tones from the Vietnam War years. Then I follow up the activity with a discussion about the music/tones/lyrics.
Lyric sheets are provided for each of the 6 songs:
"Long Way Home" - Cross Canadian Ragweed (Modern song about Vietnam - but does a great job with difficulties faced by vets)

✭✭✭✭LEAVE FEEDBACK & EARN TPT CREDITS✭✭✭✭
Are you taking advantage of FREE TpT money? ---> According to TpT, "You get one TpT Credit for every $ you spend on TpT. Thing is, you only get the Credits after you Provide Feedback — both a fair rating and a fair comment — on the items that you purchase. We will round up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example."
How do you redeem these credits? ---> "When you check out, you will be given the option of applying your TpT Credits to your purchase, thereby discounting your purchase price accordingly."
