At the reading workstation students had the opportunity to read about each of the pieces in Carnival of the Animals.
At the SmartBoard students listened to several of the pieces and then classified them by sound (dynamics, tempo, etc...).
At the Aquarium Station students created "schools" of rhythms. Together with their group the arranged rhythms and performed them with body percussion.
At the Coloring Station students colored a picture of the piece "Royal March of the Lion" by using a special key and identifying notes.
Building long lines of rhythm and performing them with a partner was great fun. Some of the rhythm-a-pillars stretched way off the carpet!
At the iPad station students worked with a partner and a funny giraffe named Gina to practice beat keeping.
