A great listening activity for "Claire de Lune" by Claude Debussy.
In this activity, your students will listen to “Debussy’s “Claire de Lune.”
Your students will think about the following questions:
Do you enjoy looking at the moon?
How does the moon make you feel?
What phase of the moon do you enjoy seeing the most?
Which do you like better, a moonlight night or a night with no moon?
Debussy’s “Claire de Lune” is about moonlight. (The French word for moon is “lune.”) As your students listen to “Claire de Lune” they will draw a picture that expresses how the music makes them feel.
Your students will write an acrostic poem about how moonlight makes them feel. An acrostic poem is made by writing the subject word vertically on the page and using each letter to begin a word or phrase that is related to the subject. (In this case, “moonlight.”)
