Patriotic Music Game Show PowerPoint
What better way to teach Patriotic Music than with a game! And with this game, all the work is already done for you! Put the PowerPoint on the board and play!!!
This PowerPoint is a mini-musical jeopardy game for Patriotic songs. I created this game as a fun way to introduce and also access prior knowledge of patriotic songs. The kids find it fun and I find it helpful in knowing how much my students already know about American patriotic songs. The five songs assessed in this game: America (My Country 'Tis of Thee), America the Beautiful, Star-Spangled Banner, Yankee Doodle, and This Land is Your Land.
NEW UPDATE: a BONUS "SECRET" SONG WITH LYRIC VIDEO included your students will love! (Isn't it nifty that you can rhyme with fifty?!?)
The game is played similarly to jeopardy - hover over a point value button to play a 30 second sound file (instrumental only). The students guess the song title and click on the point value button to see the correct answer and to see the lyrics for song. After each lyrics page, an additional information page is included, complete with history, composer, images, photographs, and external links for extension.
This is a perfect cross-curricular music lesson. It would be perfectly suited in a music classroom or general education classroom as a part of an American history social studies lesson.
