This thesis is a prototype for a music-based educational game that is designed to support the North Carolina state standards for fourth-grade social studies instruction. It is centered around the state’s music and cultural heritage. My thesis presents a segment of the digital game, the lesson plan and classroom activities that accompany it, as well as my vision for a fully produced game and a plan for its implementation in classrooms across the state. The goal of this project is to create a free, easy to use resource for fourth-grade teachers that facilitates teaching North Carolina’s rich musical traditions and connecting those traditions to the state’s history, geography, and culture in a way that is engaging and entertaining for students.
