Product Description

A fun, hands-on activity to teach rhythm lengths! You can really use these ice cream parts for any purpose. I use them in groups of 2 or 3. I mix up 2 or 3 ice cream cones (after turning them over) and have the groups work together to build the correct ice cream with matching parts. Whichever team finishes first with the correct ice cream cones wins! As an added twist, I play music (since we've been going over tempo). When the music stops, they freeze and may only start moving again when the music starts. Play slow music and they may only move slowly. Play fast music and they may move quickly. Be creative! As form of written assessment, I've also included a rhythm matching worksheet.

Directions:

1. Cut and laminate (optional) the different parts of the ice cream cone.

2. Divide class into groups.

3. Have students match the correct ice cream parts together—as an added fun step, I play music. When the music stops, they must freeze until they hear the music again. Another fun thing to add is different tempos of music. When the music is fast, they make work quickly. When the music is slow, they must work slowly.

4. Whichever team finishes their ice cream cone correctly first, wins!

*Get creative and use these ice cream cone cut outs in other ways too! Use it as a relay or a center!*
