This one page worksheet helps students organize their thoughts about music and special events in their life. Students are encouraged to choose 10 important events from their life like their birth, first day of school, birth of a sibling, funeral of a loved one, etc... and then pick a song that matches that event, could be played at the event or reminds them of that event.
Easy activity for the last couple of weeks of school as students reflect back. I used this activity with 6th and 8th graders. It takes about one 50 minute class period but could be done in less time if you spend less time in discussion. This activity would also be easy to leave for a substitute music teacher.
