Hi, there...

Clip to ScrapBook #2

Hi. I teach music, grades K-6, in a rural area of southeast Louisiana, and I have some very hyper children (some days), and I taught the students a rap song that I found in an issue of musick8 magazine. It's the Martin Luther King Rap. (I started teaching it to them this week.)
I also found a skit called "If you Followed the Drinking Gourd" that was published in one issue of musick8, and there was an article about the Underground Railroad. And, there are songs, like "If you followed the Drinking Gourd", and "Road to Freedom", it has a gospel feel to it, but it's not religious in nature, also a musick8 song.
Just a couple ideas.
musick8.com is a great place to search for ideas as well, they have an idea bank, and you can type in the subject of what you're looking for, and get some ideas.

Hope this helps.
REB
