Adding Music to Oklahoma History
Students will use the San Francisco Symphony's kids website - sfskids.org - to choose music that supports the events and people associated with the history of Oklahoma, such as Native Americans, explorers and exploration, Civil War, Trail of Tears, Land Run, and farmers and ranchers. Students will write two or three sentences to explain and support their selection of music. In small groups, students will create a statue or tableau depicting one of the events. Students will perform their statue or tableau for the class with their musical selection as a background.
