Music Monday #14...

"Do They Know It's Christmas" by Band Aid

*Today we went back to 1984 and a song that traveled the world over.

*I gave some background information about "Band Aid", the song, and the happening.

*We also talked about how all the money raised from this song, went to supplying food for Africa.

*Even though not all of my students celebrate Christmas, we discussed how this song was really about people helping people.  

*My students got a kick out of the "fashions" and "hair styles" they saw in the video.

*After watching video, we wrote in our notebooks about the song, our thoughts, and our connections.
