I am so thankful to teach in the digital age. YouTube is such an amazing resource for a variety of performances that my students would never get to see in their lifetime. I use this worksheet and show my students 7 different performances of the "Star-Spangled Banner" on YouTube.
The worksheets ask for the name of the performer, the genre, if it is acapella or accompanied and then ask the students to rate it using a 5 star system. After viewing the videos and evaluating them, students are asked to write a paragraph about their favorite.
I use this worksheet with 4th through 6th grades, but it could be used with 3rd and definitely with MS and HS. Learn more about how to use this worksheet on my blog
