Learn about the African savanna and some of its animals by getting out the bucket drums, other rhythm instruments or body percussion! This set could work in a classroom as a whole group, or in small groups, centers, or even a concert as a performance or an audience participation piece.

This drumming set uses a quarter note, a quarter rest, 1 eighth note, 2 eighth notes, and a half note.

This includes:

File #1

Facts for each of the African Savanna and 6 animals from the Savanna for lots of learning.

• Four 4/4 Time signature rhythms in 4 parts:

      Say the Word(s)

      Clap and Say the Rhythm

      Play it on your drum

      Play it with a steady beat

• Quarter note, quarter rest, one eighth note, two eighth notes, and a half note used in this file

• 4 layered pages for playing your rhythms together by adding one at a time

• 4 Posters to display for kids to help them read the rhythm they are assigned

• Small task cards of each rhythm for using in small groups, in centers, for helping a student remember his/her rhythm, or for composing new rhythms by adding them together

• Printer friendlier versions of the display posters and task cards for using less ink (not full BW but without the background)

PRINTING HELP- I have found that often my PDF files won’t print at school from my Mac. I go to the Macintosh HD icon and open it. Under Applications, open the Preview program. Then open up the file that you want to print. It works every time for me. Please contact me if you have any other questions or problems.
