This song will inspire your students to stand up for their beliefs. At a time when many children are feeling bullied, this song will empower them to stand up for themselves and for others--and to make a difference in the world. It's a great starting point for a discussion about problems that children face, and how the class can work together to improve life for everyone.
The song begins by talking about how Abraham Lincoln, Rosa Parks, and Martin Luther King, Jr. "stood up" (or sat down) to make a difference. At the end of the song, I challenge children:
Your chance to make a difference in the world is here.
Stand up for your beliefs. Make your dreams clear.
Ask yourself, "What problems do I see?" Do you feel there is some inequality?
Stand up for what you believe in, even if you think you're the only one.
One person can make a difference in the world.
Don't give up on your dreams until you're done."
This set includes an mp3 of the song, plus a packet including lyrics; motions; a comprehension page; full-color illustrations of Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Rosa Parks; and black-and white illustrations of Abraham Lincoln, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and Rosa Parks.
