Get those students listening to MORE music!
Great as a review or follow-up activity to a unit on Greek & Roman mythology, a substitute assignment, or an extra credit assignment.
Students are asked to list songs in which the lyrics reference mythology gods, heroes, monsters, stories, etc. in various musical genres. All major genres are covered, so students should be familiar with one or two. To complete the worksheet, they'll have to listen and search outside their comfort zone. Who knows? Maybe they'll find a new favorite artist or band!
Put their downtime to good use!
