How to use this resource:
Materials and Preparation:
Bottle cap rhythms
Drawstring bag (or basket, etc.)
What to do:
Place all the bottle cap rhythms in a drawstring bag. Separate children into small groups, (as you would in centers) or pair them up with a single partner. Give each student a “CREATE YOUR OWN BODY PERCUSSION” card and have everyone draw four bottle caps from the bag.
Once the children have drawn their four bottle caps, they can work independently for a few minutes to arrange the caps however they’d like on their cards. Have them practice their creations. When they have an arrangement that they like, they are ready to perform their body percussion patterns for their partners. Play again by having students pick new rhythms and new cards.
