Each year, my 6th graders write their own verse to America, The Beautiful. I have a template for this activity on my Teacher's Pay Teachers site. It's pretty straightforward. I forgot that I had these 6th graders do this activity last year as well, so this is their 2nd year. I must say, they are even better the 2nd go round!

Yankee Doodle

We learn about the history of our first Patriotic song and the dance an
easy 2-line partner dance.  I start this in Kindergarten and we dance
it again in 1st and 2nd grades.  These are 2nd graders.
