PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What better way to get students to understand what life was like in America in the 1940s than to use primary sources! This activity has students listen to five authentic songs heard on radios everywhere during WWII. Students complete a song analysis worksheet and write a song critique for one of the songs- perfect for bulletin board displays! I use this activity with my 6th graders, but I think it is appropriate for grades 5-8. My students loved listening to this music and comparing it to today's music!

This activity includes: lesson instructions, song lyric pages, song analysis worksheet, song critique writing paper, song critique guidelines, song critique grading rubric, song links (all songs can be found in multiple locations online for free)

Tap into your students' interests by using music in the classroom! The songs used in this activity cover a wide range of topics dealing with WWII, including the life of a soldier, the draft, Pearl Harbor, the Axis and Allies, women's roles in the workplace, Rosie the Riveter, etc.
