Many songs have helped me throughout my life, and it's amazing how simple words spoken out loud can make a person feel better.
For this activity, I would ask students "What would the theme song to your life be?" I would have students print out the lyrics, and we would create a self-identity college. Students would paste the lyrics on a colored construction paper, and surround the lyrics with any images/words that helps identify why this song represents their life. This activity is a great way to learn about students, and help them develop their personal identity in the Mental, Emotional, and Social Health unit.
Example Theme Songs:
- Fifteen, by Taylor Swift
- Like my Mother Does, Lauren Alaina
- Someone Like You, Adele
- Breakaway, Kelly Clarkson
- Back to December, Taylor Swift
- Something in The Water, Carrie Underwood
- Burn, Usher
