Title – Christmas Remakes
By – Cindy Penaluna
Primary Subject – Language Arts
Secondary Subjects – Music, Computers / Internet
Grade Level – 7-12

Procedure:

  • The students pick their favorite Christmas song. (Name a few to get them started.)
  • The students look their favorite song up on the Internet in at least two different places.
  • They read the history of the song and or author and summarize the information that they have found.
  • Then they take their chosen song and make a “parody” song. Their “re-make” must have the same rhythm and beat as the original song.
  • They present their version to the class.

Variations:

  • The students suggested that they play a game by letting the class guess which song that they had chosen.

Assessment:

  • I graded this in two sections:
    • The summary
    • The “re-make” and presentation
