Shot Heard ‘Round the World and Fireworks

I loved all the Schoolhouse Rock! programs when I was a kid.  I remember looking forward to commercials between Saturday morning cartoons just to see what Schoolhouse Rock! short would air.  I enjoyed Schoolhouse Rock! programs so much that when I became a teacher, I incorporated them into my lessons.

With Wednesday being Fourth of July, the teacher in me thought a few Schoolhouse Rock! history lessons would be fun for Music Monday.

Enjoy the fireworks!

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!

    I don’t remember getting these as a child in my country. I find it very interesting. Thanks for sharing these!

    There was nothing like the School House Rock! I learned the preamble to the Constitution from those cute shorts.
