Activity 16 - Song Lyrics

Music plays an important part in the lives of students. Have them bring in the lyrics to their favorite songs and create Custom Lessons. In addition to contemporary music, suggest that they search for special children’s songs and those from other decades like the ‘20s, ‘40s, ‘60s and ‘70s. This diversity will reveal the evolving social and cultural norms. Good sources of material include old sheet music, songbooks, LPs, the library, and the Internet.

Please remember that song lyrics are protected by copyright law and should be treated accordingly.
