Music for Units

I had a student give me $30 in Itunes gift cards to use for classroom music. This year I have to teach Western Expansion, Industrial Revolution, Immigration, WWI, 20s, WWII, 40s, Cold War, and Civil Rights. Do you have any suggestions for music that I could use?

I don't think this will help you out with the itunes gift card, but Linkin Park's song "What I've done" has a very historical video.

Why don't you research the number 1 song (or top 5) from each unit? Then while you're teaching the unit you can share a popular song from that time period.

what a forward thinking family!


(do you only teach history?) i've used music for:
*creating mood/plot--creative writing ideas
*to create art--one activity we did last year was (to African drum music), the kids drew and then we had a gallery stroll and everyone wrote on a postit an adjective that they thought of for that picture, and then the kids made poems from those adjectives
*what about popular dances during those times (i'm thinking Virginia Reel and that "flapper" dance where you walk backward...) you could teach those dances and have music to go along with
*also, just invigorating music to get them out of their seats and moving and waking up

what fun!

Neil Diamond: Coming to America for Immigration?

Seems like your focus is history. How about We Didn't Start the Fire by Billy Joel?
