About This Activity
I created this activity to use this within my review of the science lab for grade 7 and grade 8. Often the rules of the science lab are a review for students, but are also a required safety component of a science course. This activity is a fun way to refresh and review the science lab safety information for students who have been exposed to the rules before or to students who are new to the science lab.

Karaoke is a wonderful activity to review and reinforce concepts. It allows students to put content material into their own words, deepening their comprehension of the information.
In my experience, the project can be assigned over the course of a few days or longer. Challenge students to be creative with this project. Challenge students to use classic or popular songs and to stay away from songs like, “Row Row Row Your Boat”.


Included In This Item
♦ two page teacher guide
♦ "How to Write a Parody" reference (1 page)

♦ "Planning Pages" for students to analyze the song lyrics/song to make sure it will be adequate for changing the lyrics as well as to plan their parody content (key concepts, vocabulary, etc.). (2 pages)
♦ "Grading Rubric" for students to self-assess their work prior to turning in their project. It can also be used for grading the projects as a formative or summative grade. (1 page)
♦ Science lab rules reference sheet (1 page)

Using in the Classroom - Live Presentations:
The instructions for this activity are written for students to do a live presentation to the class. Projecting the students’ lyrics and playing the karaoke version of the song as the students present the lyrics are a simple and effective way to have students present. You may also consider extending the project, depending on your students’ gifts and skills. Students may choose to bring in instruments to play the song music.

Using in the Classroom - Digital Presentations:
They may also make a video or audio digital presentation of their material. If students choose to make a digital presentation of material, consider having them share over a safe sharing site such as a protected Vimeo, TeacherTube, Google Drive, or Edmodo account (just to name a few), as opposed to a public YouTube channel. While making a parody falls under the “fair use” policy without infringing on copyright, court cases often have debated whether a song qualifies as a parody.
