Freak The Mighty Assignment Music Lyrics Connection will help your students make text connections with this creative assignment where they find connections between song lyrics and themes and ideas that emerge in the novel Freak The Mighty by Rodman Philbrick! The assignment allows students to use their analysis and critical thinking skills to apply song lyrics to themes and content from the plot, characters, conflict, and mood of the novel.

Included In This Freak The Mighty Assignment:

➡️ Teacher Guide With Links For Songs: You can find the links on this sheet for audio and lyrics for each of the 3 songs (YouTube is required for audio). This can easily be printed or posted for students to use to find the songs.

➡️ Student Response Sheet: Students can use this sheet with one section for each song including a spot for the song title and artist to make connections between the lyrics of the songs and either the characters, plot, setting, or themes in Freak The Mighty.

➡️ Teacher Answer Key: This detailed answer key provides suggestions for responses that you can share with students as you mark or review their assignments. The answers can also be good material for building a class discussion after students share some of their answers.

What Teachers Are Saying About This Freak The Mighty Assignment:

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I needed an alternate activity for my students to complete in the event they could not participate in watching the Freak the Mighty movie, but I wanted it to be something a little more engaging and that used some media besides just the text. This was absolutely perfect for my purposes!

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I really liked this resource. My students had to think deeply. It was also good practice writing reading responses. It was easy to differentiate by assigning either 1, 2, or 3 of the songs to respond to.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My kids really enjoyed this. I let them create their own playlist after doing this activity.
