This worksheet is intended to accompany an article from Time Magazine on the effects that choral singing has on your body and brain. It is essentially a "Close" worksheet designed to help you track students' absorption of content, keep students on task, and help them retain the information included in the article. I have added the article in a printable form with only one edit to make it student-appropriate (changed a reference to alcohol to be about chocolate).
