Playing "Composers" is so much fun that your students won't even realize they are learning. This collaborative game is easily modified for any age. It can be used successfully with students from grade K-5, because it starts very simply, but can be built upon step by step until it is producing a multi-measure composition. It initially requires nothing but some space in front of the classroom and four numbered pieces of paper (printables provided). For higher levels, you may add additional numbers, rhythm sticks, a white board and/or individual whiteboards and markers.
