Third Graders have started their Star Spangled Banner unit. For the next couple of weeks they will be working in cooperative groups and cycling through various workstations. By the end of this unit, students will be able to sing the national anthem from memory, recall key elements of the history of our national anthem and be able to define vocabulary from the lyrics like "perilous" and "ramparts".
The listening station has several examples of our national anthem. These boys are listening to Jimi Hendrix's version.
