Spotlight on African American Jazz Musicians
Spotlight on African American Jazz Musicians unit is absolutely perfect for Black History month in February and/or Music in Our Schools Month! There are 6 Jazz musicians that are included in this bundle, as well as the companion worksheets for each composer.
This pack includes information files and worksheets for the following musicians:
(1) Louis Armstrong
(2) Ella Fitzgerald
(3) Thelonious Monk
(4) Bessie Smith
(5) Etta James
Nat King Cole
The Companion Worksheet/Color Pages include:
1. Facts about the musician and a clipart of the musician for coloring.
2. Fill in the blank questions about the musician and a clipart of the musician for coloring.
You may choose to print these pages back to back or use them separately.
Everything you need is included in this packet, the only thing that I add for my students is the audio, which understandably I cannot do because of copyright laws. But, fortunately, we have access to YouTube or ITunes! Download an example of the jazz artist’s music and after we review the PPT/PDF, the children break up into small groups, I turn the music on and they begin to work.
I would appreciate it if you would leave a comment after you purchase this packet…and don’t forget to follow me!
