As a group, students picked out a sound to represent the animal on their plate. Then we arranged those sounds by placing them in one of the squares on the rug.
Once our song was complete we performed it. What a growlin', howlin', buzzin' good time! Next we took a 16 beat grid and composed individual animal sound songs.
The bulletin board outside the music room uses animal sounds and rhythm patterns and asks "Children, children what do you hear?"
