I had my middle school students do illustrations for the song "I Got A Feeling" By the Black Eyed Peas. This was during my "Special Winter Break English Class".

See how to make a doodle video with your class HERE. Here are a couple of resources - Lyrics Activity

Lindsey,

Way to go - over the top! I love each drawing but especially that "starry night" one - amazing!

I'm so glad someone took on this challenge and got inspired - I'm sure your students felt super seeing the final product and that made all the hard work worth it. Plus, your students are now teachers! - Meaning, they have provided so much context for others to learn through this song, the pictures are perfect....

Great stuff!

Good questions Vincent.

My guess is WMM . I think the best way to do this is like I did on Project Peace. Make a powerpoint with each line/chunk of lyrics on a slide. Practice the song. Then print out each slide and give it out to students. On the reverse, they draw their picture, with or without lyrics...(better if done right on the drawing).

I did use WMM. I took pics of the illustrations afterwards. I passed out each bit of lyrics individually.... so the lyrics that I thought were difficult... I gave to higher level students. For the students who I thought wouldn't put in a lot of effort, I gave them lyrics that repeat in the song a lot (so it wouldn't matter as much if they didn't try).

Thanks for all your comments.
I also did a "Don't Worry Be Happy" video a while back. I did that video with classes of 30-40 students and then taught a lesson on emotions.

I remember that one, Lindsey, it was great! Like David, I noticed and liked the "Starry Night" drawing.I usually have a Van Gogh up somewhere... comunicato. Did you show the kids Starry Night, or did they know the painting already? Just curious.

Lindsay,

I showed your "don't worry be happy" video to a 1,000+ teachers recently. I think it is included in this small part of the speech I put here. . So you can tell them that beyond learning some English, improving their art skills and being happy - they are inspiring a lot of teachers!

Ellen,
to make a long story short---- they were familiar with Van Gogh. I popped up some example pics of the words "night" and "feelings" on power-point to give them some inspiration for their drawings.
