Stage 3 CAPA
Around the World Music | Back to School Activities | Elementary Music
By integrating music into your classroom, you are introducing a new take on that subject. Music is relating and filled with emotion. When learning about a new culture, why not show your students the music, activities, and customs of that culture. Students need to be given an opportunity to see that a culture is just another group of people, just like them. Not a definition to remember on a multiple choice exam.
Passing the Ball Cooperative Children Music Game Activity
Children pass the ball in this cooperative music game, and when they hear a "new" sound, the ball is passed in the opposite direction. This musical activity fosters cooperation in a fun, non-competitive way. You can request a free catalog of educational music and movement activities via email at SalemPerformingArts@msn.com
Listening Challenge "iPod Shuffle" First Day activity
This is a fun activity I use on the first day of Middle School General Music!I play 15 different short listening examples - I personally use a playlist from my iTunes, but you could use a CD, youtube, etc.Students listen to the short clip and then choose which style it fits in best.
