Elementary Lesson Plan: These Jazz Babies Ain’t Misbehavin’

Y’all my First Graders are just the cat’s meow.

I mean, we’ve be movin’ and a groovin’ to some excellent 1920’s jazz music.

See, we read a book about how Josephine Baker suffered racism in the United States and then moved to France so she could really shake her groove thang.

Then, we got to watch a video of Ms. Baker dancing with her shadow and even listened to some of her favorite music. 

We were so inspired, we drew pictures of our own Jazz Babies just a moovin’ and groovin’ to some fine jazz music.

As a bonus, this is a great tie-in (and something new and different) to Black History Month

Until then, enjoy these awesome student works!
