Are you looking for a new, colorful, interactive, adventure filled way to present the classic musical tale of Carnival of the Animals to your elementary music students? Look no further! This brand new resource is just what you need. This fabulous new resource contains beautiful eye popping clip art which will immediately captivate your students' attention, a composer biography of Saint-Saens which is also hyperlinked to the very popular children's website Classics for Kids, an introduction to what an Orchestra is (also hyperlinked to the same website), a definition of the job/purpose of a conductor, and a detailed background of where the actual story of Carnival of the Animals came from. Other surprising and convenient features in this resource include hyperlinked pages (which are all hyperlinked to a main animal page) in which students can select which animal or group of animals they think they may be listening to (as the teacher is playing the recording of the music-NOT included in purchase due to copyright rules) and click on that corresponding page to be taken to that matching animal. Within each animals PPT slide/page, there are activities, questions for discussion, etc. to help foster critical higher level thinking skills in your classroom. Your administrator will LOVE you for this!
