A listening map outlining the form of Camille Saint-Saens "Aquarium" from Carnival of the Animals. Can be used as part of a listening unit, or with movement as a stand alone lesson.
This listening map includes two pages: the first page shows the form of the music via clip art images and the second page includes credits. There is no music that comes attached to the listening map.
Directions are not included. As music educators we strive to teach the music standards, but our true job is to create a sense of purpose with our young musicians. This purpose is to create and express without limitations. Your listening map can be used in any way you see fit for the success of you and your students. Some helpful hints are below in case you're wondering how to include this resource.
