The best lesson I have created (thus far). The Veldt by deadmau5 is a popular song that is not only school appropriate, but is based on The Veldt, a short story by Ray Bradbury. The music video for the song is a cartoon depiction of the story. This lesson is super engaging for students and provides an "ah-ha!" moment when they realize what the song is talking about! Play the music video for students after reading the short story = minds blown.
