Students will be shown a movie scene four different times but with different music. Students on their worksheets will pick and choose which music was most suitable for the scene. The four videos displayed in each slide are interactive in presentation mode. You can click and choose which of the four you would like to play while in presentation mode if students would like to hear one specific scene again before making final decisions. This lesson shows kids that music can change the entire meaning of a film! This exercise is done with 5 different movie scenes. Then the lesson moves on to the next activity:

After students are then shown many different scenes of a movie, but with the same music. They must pick which scenes the music was most suitable for on their worksheets.

This lesson plan is extremely interesting, and definitely should get 100% of your class engaged without a doubt. This is great for creating discussions and getting some kids out of their bubbles.

You can branch this lesson plan out in your own direction in countless ways after you have already presented it to your class. Included is a film project where students write a script for a short film. Students will act out their short film three times in front of the class, while each of the three times different film music is playing. This unit will keep you and your class engaged and busy for a month!
