Description

This activity is based on a Hip Hop history rap song and includes multiple-choice questions, worksheet activities, and a graphic organizer. The activities for the passage challenge students to identify the main idea and supporting details for different sections of the song lyrics.

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

The song for this activity is written as a reading passage that explores how two founding fathers and a mother of Hip Hop contributed to the urban art, and how it developed into a unified sound. If your students enjoy rap or hip-hop music, they will love this reading lesson.

Students will listen to the song while reading the lyrics and then find the main idea for each section of the song lyrics presented. Students will also identify the supporting details that represent the main idea of each selected section of the song lyrics. A graphic organizer for identifying the main idea and its supporting details is also included as an activity.

This Hip Hop reading activity includes:

- the song lyrics for use as a reading passage

- 1 main idea and supporting details, graphic organizer writing activity with 3 sections

- 6 multiple-choice, identify the main idea questions with the answer key

- 3 multiple-choice, identify the supporting details questions with the answer key

- 1 "Main Idea on Beast Mode!" challenge activity where students will identify the main idea of the entire song using their main idea and supporting details graphic organizer

- 3 extension "Beast Mode!" activities where students are challenged to:

  • create a dance for the song lyrics
  • illustrate the lyrics through art
  • or dramatize the song by acting out the lyrics.

How to use this activity:

- Read and discuss the "What's the Main Idea?" section of the activity on page 1 with students.

- Have students preview the song lyrics on pages 3 and 4 to understand how the song lyrics are sectioned.

- Play the song and have students follow along with the lyrics.

- Pause the song after Verse 1A is finished.

- Complete the graphic organizer on page 1 together as a class for Verse 1A. Ask students for supporting details to complete the graphic organizer. Brainstorm together as a class to summarize the main idea as one sentence based on the chosen supporting details.

- Play the remainder of the song and have students complete the remaining graphic organizer activities. Review student answers as a class when students are finished.

- Have students complete the remaining activities listed above independently. Review as needed or refer students to the instructions on page 1 for help.

- The answer key is located on page 11.

- Have students choose an activity from the "Beast Mode!" activities section when all of the main idea and supporting details activities are complete. Students may work in groups or individually for these activities.
