Product Description
As I continue to research different music by musicians from Colorado I keep stumbling on songs that were up for consideration for Colorado's state song. "Colorado" is one of them

As a non Colorado native, I never will understand why Colorado residents don't like their first state song "Where the Columbines Grow"; my 4th graders don't seem to understand it either.

When I introduced this song to them and gave them the information that this song was a candidate to replace "Where the Columbines Grow " a few of my students exclaimed "Another one! How many were there?! Why doesn't anyone like 'Where the Columbines Grow?""

But despite their disbelief they learned the song and enjoyed it. The song itself has very colorful words and metaphors and while it is short the style of Haggard's singing makes the song fairly long.

The presentation is animated to go line by line to help students follow the music and for easier teaching or the meaning of the lyrics. It also includes information on Merle Haggard and the significance of this song in Colorado.

You can download the song from your choice of music provider or find it on iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-roots-of-my-raising/id714750226)

Please let me know if there is any issues with the formatting or animations.
