The Bear Went Over the Mountain by Iza Trapani

Schema: traditional song with new words

Text-to-Self: Five Senses

Sequencing: Seasons

Synthesis: Create a new song based on this pattern but have each student choose a place that they would like to learn more about and use that as the location. Incorporate research on the places as part of the preparation to writing the song. Use each of the five senses in the original songs highlighting sights and sounds unique to the setting of each song.
