Peter and the Wolf-an Introduction to Instruments

In third grade we learn more about the instruments of the orchestra.  One of the fun ways we explore the instruments is to listen and watch the story of Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev.  Each character in the story is represented by an instrument or group of instruments.

In addition to watching and listening to this story we use our SmartBoard for some interactive lessons on the instruments and play a listening game from Ultimate Game & Activity Pack for Orchestra.  In the pictures below students listened to an example and then pinched the instrument they heard.
