A Star Spangled Story...

Fifth Grade students at ACFT are working on the next Music Class Standards-Based Bulletin Board (SBBB).  They are working on singing the Star Spangled Banner (SSB), as well as retelling the historical story behind it (TEKS include 5.3A, 5.5B, and 5.5D – singing the Star Spangled Banner, and examining the relationship between the song and the history behind it, along with Celebrating Freedom this week).  Today they started the project – with the iPads they had a choice of either working on the story and illustration using information from my website, or they could practice singing the song and make a video of their singing for me to watch later.  Students will continue working on this project next week, and the attached rubric will help me to determine the work which will make the SBBB – about the SBB!
