Do you know that most nursery rhymes are steeped in history? Time has caused us to lose the knowledge of these histories. In this assignment, students will research a childhood nursery rhyme and it's hidden history, then give a speech to their peers. Included in this lesson are: Background Information, Directions and 5 Example Note Cards to model structure of the speech, A List of Nursery Rhymes, and a 5 day schedule. This speech is lacking a rubric, but would be easy to create.
