Looking for pop music for your music classroom that is both appropriate and inspiring? Wanting a way to bridge the gap between folk songs and more contemporary music? This is a collaborative set, co-created with my friend Lessia at I am Bullyproof Music, and is the first in a series. This set is the same price as buying only the mp3’s and sheet music separately in Lessia’s store. The pack includes:

Mp3’s for the song “Einstein”: includes the song with vocals, and with only background vocals. Using these mp3’s, you can have students listen and reflect, sing along, and perform!
Sheet music for the song “Einstein”: This is helpful if you want to play along on piano, or if you want to look at the song for teaching specific concepts
A list of musical concepts you can teach through the song: Includes notes about teaching half rest, octaves, tika-ti (or two sixteenths/eighth), and chorus
Biography powerpoint about Albert Einstein: Can be used to teach about Einstein’s life, giving context to the song and providing cross-curricular connections
Einstein song reflection worksheet: Can be used the first or second time students listen to the song, to have students reflect on the song, discuss personal connections to the song, list what they wonder about the song, etc. Great for critical thinking!
Einstein Lyrics Powerpoint: Project for students to read or sing the lyrics as they listen to the song! We included two versions: one with only the lyrics, and one with embedded music.
Einstein lyric reflection worksheet: Asks students specific questions about the lyrics
Einstein lyric slips activity: Great to use with students as a way to teach the song! Students are split up into small groups, then get slips to organize the lyrics in order!
Directions for the set: Includes suggestions for when and how to use each activity

I have used this song with my own fourth graders, and was floored by how much they loved it! The song is about making a difference and helping to change the world around us, which is a message that really resounds with students. "Einstein" also includes a bit of Beethoven's "Fur Elise," which is a fun classical connection! We hope your students enjoy it as much as ours have!
