This free journey goes from the 1100's today and is inteded for Music Teachers to share with their students (works great on a Smart Board!). It includes audio samples and an AMAZING music video with the Pentatonix. It's perfect for a fun overview of the history of music. If you DO have a SmartBoard, then make sure your speakers are on because you can start it right now and simply navigate forward and backward. All audio and video samples start automatically as your presentation navigates itself in what looks like 3D. If you don't have a Smart Board in your music room, don't worry. You can use this presentation (via the same link that's below) to guide your students through a computer lab session.

This entire activity can be a great opening year activity for music class. Start with the overview discussion, share the music and use the video if you wish to expand. This is a wonderful opportunity for music teachers to complete a cross-curricular lesson. And if you add a five minute writing prompt such as ‘my musical choices for the real Labor Day’, it’s meeting all your requirements. TIP: start at the bottom of this page and watch the Smithsonian video on the music of the American Labor Movement which gives the perspective needed to lead the discussion with your music students.  Here are talking points to serve as the basis of a discussion regarding the origin of Labor Day.
