PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teach your students about aleatoric music (composing by chance) with this entertaining egg hunt activity! Students go on an egg hunt around the classroom and select 6 eggs with note names on them. The order of the notes in the motive will then be determined by rolling a die. Students will finally add rhythms (note heads are shaped like eggs) to their motive and play it!

Includes:
-Detailed teacher instructions and a sample aleatoric motive
-Composer Profile for John Cage, the famed composer of aleatoric music (includes photo, birth/death dates, a one-page description of his musical style, and sample pieces with links to YouTube)
-Egg Hunt Tracker sheet (for students to record the notes on their eggs and assign numbers to each note by rolling a die)
-My Egg Hunt Motive sheet (includes a C Major scale on the treble clef staff with note names and solfege syllables underneath for reference; notes are colour-coded to match Boomwhackers and hand bells)
-Egg Rhythms sheet (where students glue rhythms below the notes of their motive)
-My Finished Egg Hunt Motive sheet (the good copy of the motive goes here - features a treble clef staff)
-7 pages of egg-shaped rhythms (one page each of eighth notes [beamed], quarter notes, half notes, dotted half notes, whole notes, dotted quarter notes, and single eighth notes
