Description

Pop-culture movie + parody rap song = fun reading activities for 5th grade! Agree?

Then this bundle is just for you!

Based on our movie review, parody song, these activities will keep your students engaged using song lyrics while they practice a variety of reading skills! Easily incorporate them into independent activities or complete them together as a class lesson.

Students will listen to the song then use the song lyrics as a reading passage to complete the activities detailed below.

The song for this activity explores the culture and history behind the Moana movie, comparing the original, Islander folktales with Disney's story.

Listen to the song with subtitles here! (Click here if you have trouble viewing the video.)

Is this too "Disney" for some of my students?

The song lyrics for these activities cover interesting topics and characters such as Maui, a mighty demigod, providing a good deal of action for students. The song is also performed and written in an energetic style that any students looking for some excitement will enjoy. (Don't worry - your boys will have fun too!)
