Your students will love this game where they choose a camper and follow tracks through the woods to see if they can find Bigfoot! With each slide more tracks are revealed so that your students end up reading a 16 beat pattern, which is extracted from a folk song or art music. There is an extension idea include on how to incorporate musical memory before returning to the camp site

This file includes 5 versions of the game so that it can be different each time your students play it. (There are 5 versions in stick notation without note heads and 5 versions in stick stick notation with note heads)

Rhythm notations used in this file are from:
All Night, All Day
Charlotte Town
Great Big Dog
My Good Old Man
Shanghai Chicken

*** These are non-specific to a counting system so they will work with however your students read rhythms! ***
