4th and 5th Grade - Music Videos

Reading schools repeats specials Fridays, so we typically have "Fun Friday," where in Art we take a break from our regular-week activities by playing an art game or doing another activity.  For this Fun Friday activity, the 4th and 5th graders collaborated to make lyric music videos for a few classic songs:  Come Together by the Beatles and Lookin' Out My Back Door by Creedence Clearwater Revival.

Each student got either a lyric from the song or a "music break," and it was his or her job to draw a picture of what that lyric (or song) would look like.  I collected the pictures, put them in order, and set them up with the music to create the music video.  The results are really cool, and definitely something I want to build on moving forward - hopefully I can give them more time.

The Beatles - Come Together

CCR - Lookin' Out My Back Door
