Where have all the flowers gone

This week's song is "Where Have all the Flowers Gone." I have decided to keep all the music on a peace theme. This is a really old song, long before my students' time, but it is good for them to try out the present perfective anyway.

Today's activity was just to listen to the music with the lyrics in front of them and follow along. Some of the students were trying to sing anyway. That was encourageing. I think some of the words were also new. graveyard isn't one of those words that comes up in textbooks very often, but nearly everywhere you go, there they are. It was good for that vocabulary at least. The rest is pretty repetetive, so they can catch on pretty easily.
