This activity fits perfectly into any unit on the American Revolution. I designed it to be a culminating activity for students to creatively demonstrate their understanding of the events leading up to, during, and as a result of the American Revolution.
There is a link included in the activity to a fantastic music video parody about the Declaration of Independence. After watching the video, analyze the song lyrics with the included worksheet and answer key.
You could stop there, or you can continue on and have students write their own parodies. This is a lot of fun and provides students the opportunity to get creative. I gave an example of a parody I started to write. You could choose to complete this parody as a class with the remaining lyrics from the original song. Or you could have students choose their own songs to write parodies for. The possibilities are as limitless as your student’s imaginations!
