Tootie's Education Empire loves making the Common Core come alive through the arts! This lesson pack is an integration of writing, internet research, music, and an oral presentation report on the continents. It is a multi-faceted social studies lesson that includes a download of the original jazzy tune "Seven Continents".
I wrote this song for my students to help them learn the continents with ease. I have found this music to be a very helpful learning tool.
Before introducing the oral presentation project, hand out the lyrics to the song and let the students listen to "Seven Continents" as they follow the lyric sheet. The song serves as a mini lesson about continents and gives students prior background knowledge. Encourage students to sing along.There are a couple of worksheets included in this pack that can be used after the sing-along for review or as a homework assignment.
Classroom teachers and homeschoolers alike will find the oral presentation component useful for scholars. It is suitable for students in grade 3 - 6 and covers multiple Common Core Learning Standards. The report engages pupils to utilize speaking skills, listening skills, technology, and the creation of visual aids.
This 10-paged pack is replete with a song lyric sheet, worksheets about the continents and oceans, map skills, a continents oral presentation instruction sheet, oral presentation helpful hints, an oral presentation report outline, an oral report rubric, and answer keys for worksheets.
