What is History? (A Lesson Plan)

What is History?

Each Friday, Flocabulary makes The Week in Rap, and we call it a “current events video.” And each December, the Flocab team steps back and selects the top events of the year, sets them to rhyme, and brings you The Year in Rap. (And then in the spring, we look back even further and bring you The Last 18 Years in Rap!) But our question for you and your students is: Is The Year in Rap reporting on history or current events?

This lesson plan will allow you to use Flocabulary’s Week in Rap, Year in Rap and 18 Years in Rap to allow your students to begin to chip away at this big question: What is History?
