Celebrating Black History Month with the Sounds of African-American Music: Jazz and Hip-Hop
What do like to groove to? Bebop or hip-hop? In this Black History Month lesson plan, students will listen to and learn about two music genres heavily influenced by African-Americans. Then they will write about which genre they prefer.
Second graders love field trips and sharing their opinions! This fun lesson combines both, as students must convince their teacher to take them on a field trip by practicing their opinion writing and using paragraph structure.
