Baa, baa, black sheep,
Have you any wool?
Yes, sir, yes, sir,
Three bags full;
One for the master,
And one for the dame,
And one for the little boy
Who lives down the lane.

The rhyme “Baa, Baa, Black Sheep” is known from the first half of the 18th century. One of the theories about the explanation of its meaning is political and related with the medieval taxes on wool and the slave trade.
The song gave its title to a period military television series that aired on NBC from 1976 until 1978. Its premise was based on the experiences of United States Marine Corps aviator Gregory “Pappy” Boyington and his World War II “Black Sheep Squadron”.
“Baa, Baa, Black Sheep” can be used in teaching the musical variation to younger kids in a simple manner. So we recommend to play and sing together (or in a row) with “Twinkle twinkle little star”.
As a cross-curricular activity, you could work with creative writing: students could be encouraged to make a couple of lines on their own and then work together in groups to combine them into verses. Just let them unfold their creativity and have fun!
