Product Description
This is an interactive way for students to review Lewis & Clark/War of 1812 vocabulary in groups while creating their own Yankee Doodle parodies set to the tune of Yankee Doodle. They have one 45 minute period to write their song. (two verses and one chorus) One period is also used to create a 4 page slideshow and finally a third period is dedicated to presentations. You can plan the lesson to your liking by having students work on the slideshow entirely for homework so that saves a class period also. Students work in groups of two or three and the entire class participates by singing.

These are the handouts and Yankee Doodle instrumental I used to front load students for the lesson. I also played the original Yankee Doodle song in nursery rhyme format.

Yankee Doodle Karaoke Version on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SntzM4OTsao

I also showed an example Yankee Doodle Powerpoint (searchable on TPT) to highlight what I want from presentations.

During presentations, I have two browser windows open side by side. One browser displays the student presentation and another browser displays the Yankee Doodle Karaoke lyrics so students can sing in tune. (Again, your class may not need the original lyrics and you can display presentations in full screen mode.)
Students sing each verse once and repeat the chorus twice during presentations.
