Making Connections: Music & Culture

Students in all grades discussed and experienced music from African American History.  We began in Ghana then traveled to the United States, experiencing music from slavery through segregation and the Civil Rights movement through popular music today.

Every grade had a version of the worksheet below that we used to summarize our learning.  At the end, students had an opportunity to share the connections between music and their lives today.  This video shows one student explaining the pictures of their life.  K/1 Video

Your student’s worksheet can be found in their leader binder at the end of the year.
