I have used a time period workstation concept with my grades 6-8 students for a few years now. Now I can also use parts of this revised unit with my younger grade students too.
Each time period can be used as a separate workstation or they can be used individually with the whole class (with the clickable links in the PDF file) on a Smartboard.
This set includes four time period (Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Modern) workstations, and a “Composition” workstation where students create their own modern “Chance” music using dice (included). There is also a “Listening/Movement” station included where students create their own 32 beat dance.
You could even purchase one of my Composer & Time Periods "Go Fish" games (sold separately) or Crazy Composers (similar to Crazy Eights) to use as a possible other station for this unit. (NOT INCLUDED)
Each time period station contains the following components (1) info about the three featured composers for the time period & what life was like for composers at that time, (2) events (both in the U.S. and worldwide) that were happening during each period, (3) forms of music (with definitions) that were popular during that time, (4) what to specifically listen for to make it easier to aurally recognize music from the time periods, and (5) YouTube links to featured compositions by the composers.
This bundled set contains the Workstation unit (and signs) that can be printed onto card stock and laminated for keep, worksheets and exit slips (across all K-8 grade levels).
Worksheets/Exit Slips deal with a variety of standards and benchmarks such as: matching composers to time periods, asking students feelings when listening, arranging composers/time periods in chronological order, relating how events/issues have influenced music, relating music elements to how it effects moods, students aurally identifying the composer of a musical piece,
relating popular forms of music with each time period, etc.
Note to buyers:This listening links were revised on 8-22-2016. If you have already purchased this, please re-download the product to receive the revisions.
