Grade 3. Chp 12. Page 69-73
Ask the class to pick their favorite song. Browse the song online and check for a you tube version with lyrics.
- Clear up any confusion about the words.
- Encourage the group of kids to think of a theme for the music video. They should get creative and think about what the song means to them. The story line that they act (and dance) out doesn’t need to be the obvious subject matter of the song; some of the most interesting music videos are those that interpret the songs in an abstract way.
- Help them make up a choreographed dance for the music video, and urge them to practice it until they feel ready to perform. Remind them that the more prep work they put into it, the more professional it will look.
- Once they’re ready to go, have them present their music video creation as you film it with your phone. Be patient; there will probably be lots of giggling at first, and they’ll most likely need to perform it several times through until they get it right.
