My students are eager to learn patriotic songs these days! I chose songs for different grade levels, the youngest learning “America” and the older ones “The Star-Spangled Banner.” In order to help them memorize the words, I laminated 12 copies of each song, cut them into pieces (line strips for the 2nd graders) and put each song in a Baggie. Students get a partner, find a clear space on the floor, and must put the song puzzle together. The first time they do this, they do get to use their song sheets, but later it is from memory only. The kids LOVE this activity!
