New York City is one of the world's most fascinating cities. Using the 1949 MGM film musical classic On the Town for inspiration, invite your students to plan a one day itinerary to explore the Big Apple. Your students will respect your old-school approach when you have them listen to lyrics that explain that the "Bronx is up and the Battery's down" and people "get around in a hole in the ground". Do you know where Grant's Tomb is located or do you know the best way to get to the Bowery? You will (and so will your students) after you conduct this engaging 3-day lesson plan with your English Language Arts class (also Humanities, ESL, and Social Studies friendly).
