Songs are a great way to get students to think about a deeper meaning to a text. Using the lyrics to Zombie by the Cranberries and Russians by Sting will help get students to think more deeply about a topic.
There are a series of questions that relate specifically to the songs and there are links to the video clips that can help students get another insight into the song. They have to read the lyrics first and then watch and listen to it. The questions are designed to challenge them and get them to think carefully about the lyrics.
Great opportunities for discussions to be had about war and ANZAC as well.
