PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Need a fun way to engage and assess what your students hear as you study about (and play) musical examples from Holst's "Mercury" from The Planets? Use these listening glyphs with a picture of the planet as well as a figure from mythology for who the planet was named after on it to assess what your students hear. Play a recording (not included) and have your students follow the color code key to assess what they hear. Items assessed in this set include:
"Mercury"
♬ strings vs no strings
♬ brass vs no brass
♬ woodwinds vs no woodwinds
♬ singing vs no singing (vocals vs no vocals)
♬ tempo is fast vs tempo is slow
♬ dynamics stay the same vs dynamics change
♬ French horns vs no French horns
♬ violins vs no violins
♬ flutes vs no flutes

Make these glyphs part of a listening station, homework, or as a whole class activity. *Updated 5-22-16 - additional clip art of Mercury images have been added.
