Sing authentic songs in Dutch, Iroquois, and English . . . try your hand at an ancient African American musical activity . . . puzzle over some tuneful brain teasers on colonial trades (24 of them!) . . . laugh, move, respond, and learn as we explore life in the 13 original British colonies and New Netherland.
Complementing the elementary and middle school ELA/SS curricula, this school assembly program takes students well beyond Yankee Doodle to discover colonial life through some great hidden music and fascinating stories.
Grades 3-8, 45 minutes
