About This Activity
What do songs say about the time in which they were created?
Songs express what people think and feel, even as they introduce people, places and events. In this activity, you can explore the past through songs of the time. You can consider why the songs were written and what they tell you about life and beliefs during previous eras. Then, you can rewrite the songs for our times, reflecting the events, places, people, feelings and perspectives of today.
Alternatively, you may use the Enhanced Version. The Enhanced Version requires Macromedia Flash Player 7.
