Stephanie Skolmoski has created a musical lesson plan about the the composer John Philip Sousa and his famous marches. Lesson includes digital links to YouTube videos and free audio files. There are also several writing activities, musical activities, theater (theatre) activities, dance activities and/or art activities to go along.
This is the perfect lesson and activity for elementary school children and teachers. The songs are about 3+ minutes long each and the lesson could take about 30 minutes. Depending on the activity or activities you choose they could take 15+ minutes to complete. You can see an example of one of Stephanie’s lesson plans on Stephanie Skolmoski’s blog
