Back to School: Rewriting The Beatles’ “Help!”

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through January 27th, 2023. Join today!


Students will sum up their breaks using a one-syllable word and then rewrite the song Help! based on that word.

Here's a live performance of The Beatles playing Help!


  1. First, students will come up with a one-syllable word (like "help") to sum up their experiences away from school. They'll rewrite the intro to Help! using this word.
  2. Next, each student will write about their own experiences around the one-syllable word and rewrite a verse of Help!
  3. Then, groups will rewrite the chorus of Help! to be about their experiences.
  4. Finally, students can create artwork, do a photoshoot, film a music video, or even learn semaphore!


The registration window closes on January 27th, 2023
