Get your kids excited about diving into ancient Israel with this 13-verse rap. The rap covers the major people and events in Israel's ancient history and provides scaffolding for your entire unit.
There are two versions of the rap included in the PDF. One has clip art that is geared toward 4-6th graders and the other has clip art for older students. Use whichever one you like better :).
**Click PREVIEW to see both versions of the rap.**

I've included a VIDEO DEMO to help you learn the rap. I usually teach about 4 verses a day and then we practice the whole thing every day until the test. The students who memorize the rap usually get As on their Ancient Israel Test because it helps them remember who's who and what's what :).
