This is a fun rhythm recognition game for students in grades 1-3. On each page are eight flies, each with a four-beat rhythm pattern in its wings. Rhythms used in Level 3 are Ta, Ti-Ti, Rest, Ta-a, Tika-Tika & Syncopa.
When the "Zzzzzzzz" box at the top of the page is pressed, one of the rhythm patterns is heard playing on a non-pitched percussion instrument. Two students with fly swatters race to swat the correct fly. If the correct fly is swatted, it turns into a splat. If an incorrect fly is swatted, it stays where it is.
A tried and true game that students will beg to play over and over! Also a great substitute activity!
