Whether it's the end of your semester class or the end of a year long class, this project will keep kids excited about being in music. This Was My Year! is a great music project and opportunity for students to show off what their year has been like, while exploring appropriate background music.
Students will select photos from their school life and outside of school life. They will then put them into a mini movie with background music studied in class and their personal favorite. Part of the project is identifying this music and telling why it represents their school year.
This music project includes a two sided step by step hand out which students fill out and use as a guide for putting their movie together. A grading scale is included and encourages reviews of other student movies.
If you don't have technology in the classroom, give this as an at home final project. This is sure to be fun and a great opportunity for you to get to know your students. Your students will have a lot of fun watching each other's projects!
