In Search of the Heart of America: A Primary Grade Geographical Musical Play in Study of the United States.
Christensen, Lois M.
To introduce primary grade children to the five themes in geography, a play about the United States is presented as a musical. The five themes are location, place, human environment interaction, region, and movement. The play is designed to help students understand the multicultural nature of U.S. history. Eleven states are located on a map and students describe characteristics of each state including landforms, state symbols, famous people, and natural resources. As the musical moves from state to state, songs related to each place are sung. The songs include "New York, New York" and "Sweet Home, Alabama." (KM)
