Tags: Parts of Speech
For our 80’s Week at the Summer Camp the Orange group focused on the parts of speech.
The students first learned about different famous figures: Michael Jordan, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Pac-man, Papa Smurf, John DeLorean, Ronald Reagan. Then they learned about typical hairstyles from the 1980s and drew an 80s version of each other using the vocabulary they had learned. They watched music videos like Cyndi Lauper’s ‘Girls Just Want to Have Fun’ and Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad’, then Weird Al Yankovic’s ‘Fat’ to practice looking for the different types of hairstyles.
