What fun we had during bees and bears day in music! We warmed our voices up by vocalizing and following beelines high and low.
We went on a bear hunt. In these pictures there was a girls' hunting party and a boys' hunting party. We packed our cameras and were off on a dramatic steady beat adventure!
Next we read and discussed the book "Berlioz the Bear".
After we read and discussed this musical book we listened to "Flight of the Bumblebees" by Rimsky-Korsakov. We pretended to be flowers by "planting" our feet and waving scarves in the air while the other half of the class buzzed around with bumblebees.
We reviewed before buzzing out the door the musical opposites we had experienced today: high/low, loud/soft and fast/slow.
