Are you looking for a fun and interactive way for your students to practice musical concepts? This Digital Escape Room activity is a fun way for virtual students or small groups to apply and practice what they know about Tika-Tika (sixteenth notes). This fun Digital Escape Room has students completing five tasks digitally as they explore a 360 image, then entering answers into a Google Form to escape the room (or in this case, to find their way back home from being lost at sea!)
The tasks included in the Digital Escape Room include:
- Task 1, Rhythm reading activity: Students watch a YouTube video, then answer a question about the number of sounds in the first pattern
- Task 2, Watching a performance of “Tideo": Students answer a question about tika-tika in the song
- Task 3, Rhythm randomizer game: students read 10 8-beat patterns with tika-tika, then answer a question about the number of sounds in tika-tika
- Task 4, Rhythm identification game: Students play a game in which they listen to a pattern, then identify which pattern it is
- Task 5, Coding in Scratch: Students code pattern with tika-tika, then answer a question about their coding blocks
Your students will ❤️ love ❤️ completing the tasks in this Digital Escape Room!

❣️"This was the first time my students (and myself) have used an escape room activity. Because of this I made a Screencastify video explaining what to do in detail to help the kids navigate through the different tasks, then I had them take a screenshot of the congrats message at the end and post that to our Google Classroom. It was so fun!!"
