Music Videos that Teach History

SmartSongs is a great website for helping students learn about the presidents, Bill of Rights, branches of government and more. 


After using several of their videos in class (when they fit in with a topic we were studying) I challenged my students to get into groups of three and make their own music videos about one of the presidents. The students had so much fun and the results were amazing! But before I show you one of their projects, here are some videos from SmartSongs.




And now for one that my students made about President Theodore Roosevelt.
