What’s Inside We Got Jazz!
We Got Jazz! explores the lives and careers of five famous jazz artists:
- Dizzy Gillespie
- Nat King Cole
- Ella Fitzgerald
- Miles Davis
- Duke Ellington
But the book does more than simply offer a biography of each person. We Got Jazz! encourages kids to get to know each artist’s music through review questions, copywork, and musical analysis.
Using We Got Jazz! as a Jazz Unit Study Workbook
Each jazz unit study in We Got Jazz! focuses on a different artist. After reading the biography, kids can answer the review questions, complete a crossword puzzle, practice copywork from each artist’s work, and complete a listening activity.
Since the activities involve reading, writing, music, art, and copywork, you can incorporate several of your school subjects into each unit study!
If you choose, you can print the entire workbook and bind it as a spiral notebook. Or you may wish to print the activities only and read the biographies digitally. You’ll find that the ebook is very flexible, which is perfect for homeschoolers!
At the back, you’ll find additional activities, including timelines, identification pages for young learners, and matching games! We Got Jazz! also features a complete bibliography so that you can make use of more resources as you see fit.
