Provide your students will the opportunity to learn about the role these fascinating composers played in music history. These could be used in a music class or any time you are working on a research project in the regular classroom. Don't forget to click on the preview image.

Follow my store to see when I add new banner packs.

The completed "Great Composers" banner is going to look perfect as a hallway display or within the classroom. You can attach the pieces to yarn and drape them, or you can simply staple them to a bulletin board.

I have marked these biography posters about famous composers for grades 4-6, but I feel they will be most popular in grades 4-5. Please use your best judgment and click on the PREVIEW button above to get a better idea as to what you are purchasing. Some teachers in grades 7-8 may also find these suitable. Once again, look closely and you can decide. :-)

Grab your media specialist, get your computers ready, and have fun researching and learning about some new people. Have the students check out books and complete it as an in-class project. It could also be an at-home project, and then you can have the students report orally.

Another suggestion is to have the students use the banner pieces as an organizer and then use the information to do a more formal writing.

On each poster you will find the name of a famous composer along with a black/white outline image of the person.

Students will fill in the below information:

*Their own name
*Birth/Death of individual (if they have died)
*Explain their major accomplishments
*If they could ask the person a question, what would it be
*Obstacle faced
*style of music
*Words to describe
*Fun facts
******There is also a banner piece that can be printed on the back if you want them to have more research spaces. The students can label these however they would like. It includes 3 large boxes of lines.
******I have also included color images to add to your banner to make it pop, as well as bow to print and hang on the ends if you want to use them.

You will find that some are more famous than others, but with 36 banner pieces, students could each do a different report. OR, if you want to focus on the more famous people or someone in particular you are studying in class, you could have 2 students do the same person or even the whole class. PLUS, I provided a blank banner if they want to choose someone else. Use them however you would like.
