Activity: Creating

An app on andriod tablets.

 

I had to put this as a "non-tech" acitivty because it could not locate the app and let me move on.

The app is called "sketch-a-song-4-kids"

Student Instructions

This is a game where the students will be able to create their own "composition". It provides visual, as well as auditory queues for them to follow and will help them to write music in the future.

Activity: Conversing

The students will listen to each other's compositions and provide feedback about what they liked. The teacher will ask the students if they drew any conclusions from the activity based on what they had already learned in previous lessons.
