We didn’t start the fire

Fun Day for All

Today we worked through famous events in history. (See attached list.) These are actually events from the song, “We didn’t start the fire” by Elton John. I don’t tell them until they are finished then play the song. THEN I give them the list for the new Fall Out Boy version. It’s a fun project to work on.

Editors then led students in team-building games. I am constantly rebuilding the culture of fun and family since COVID. As a teacher, it’s hard to take days off like this, but the payoff is so worth it.

Here is the We Didn’t Start the Fire worksheet.
