Music World


Students listen to random pieces of music, to be chosen by teacher. They then, with a group or alone, choose words that best represent what they hear. There are 175 different words and phrases for them to choose from, ranging from actual musical terms to terms like "Summer" or "New York". It's a good activity for getting kids to really think about what they are hearing and using words to describe it. Words must be cut up and laid out for students to see prior to listening activity.
