Virginia's products and industries can be difficult for students to memorize. A few years ago, my students were really struggling to memorize the products and industries of Virginia because there are so many parts they have to remember. So, I wrote this song to the melody of ‘Misery’ by Maroon 5 (that particular class loved Maroon 5). Amazingly, once I implemented this song, my students quickly mastered memorizing the products and industries for all 5 regions. Since implementing this song into my Virginia Studies curriculum, 100% of my students who have taken the Virginia Studies SOL have passed advanced and I know this song is the reason they did so well on the section pertaining to the regions, products, and industries.
A suggested use page is included, explaining how I introduce and use the song throughout the year. A link is also provided to an instrumental version for students to sing-a-long with.
