PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Aligned with the Grade 2 Ontario Social Studies, Music, and Language curricula. This package is differentiated to accommodate three levels of learners:
- learners with grade 1 concepts of rhythm
- learners in the middle
- learners with full grade 2 concepts of rhythm

** This activity is part of my Local and Global Communities Integrated Activity.

In this assignment, students will create an 8-beat chant to describe a community. The package has several pages which scaffold the activity for students into very important stages. This activity is intended to span over a week or two (or three)! After completion, students can orally present their community chants.

I've used this activity in two very different Grades 1/2 classes so far and it's been a hit (click here for the combined-grades package).

** Social Studies
- Grade 2 - Global Communities
** Music
- Grade 2 - quarter, eighth, half, and whole notes + rests

It fits in well with the Grade 2 Ontario Music Educators' Association unit plan - or can stand alone by itself (and your wonderful lessons).

Grade 2s will:
- complete a Venn Diagram comparing 2 communities
- make lists describing their global community
- select favourite words (critical thinking)
- sort words based on their rhythmic notation as per the Grade 2 Music curriculum
- write words and notation onto square templates
- arrange words in an interesting manner to create an 8-beat chant

You can get a reportable mark/observation and comments for:
- music
- social studies
- oral communication
- writing
** Rubric based on the Ontario Achievement Charts included.

Teaching a 1/2 combined classroom? This package is assembled for that, too - here!
