The stark graphics in minimalistic style make the music video "The Veldt" by MAU5/Chris James a visually and emotionally effective means to study Ray Bradbury's short science fiction story of the same name.
Students are highly interested in how the music lyrics (included) mirror the story. Engaging and thought-provoking questions help students process the structure and deeper meaning of the story while listening to current music.
Answer key included, though many student answers will vary based on interpretation of material and nature of science fiction.
This is a lesson that kids will be talking about to each other and sharing on social media!
