Getting ready to teach your kids about intervals? Try a fun new flash card game named Inspector Interval!
In this powerpoint is a brief overview of intervals. Step by step instructions are given on how they are built, and more importantly, how they are identified.
Throughout this powerpoint, there are over 100 random flash cards with intervals on a treble clef staff with an accompanying blank box. I usually have my students compete against each other (boys vs girls, top risers vs bottom risers, etc) to see who can name the interval the fastest. The winner stays up and competes against the next student in class and the one left standing at the end is deemed the winner!
Included are two powerpoint files:
Inspector Interval 2nd-7th: Only with 2nd thorugh 7th intervals
Inspector Interval Unison-Octave: Full intervals (with descriptions for Unison and Octave intervals, and how to identify them)
All the slides have animations attached them and should work on Microsoft Powerpoint 2007 and above. In addition, the "jazztext" font is included (with installation directions) as your system may not have the file already on it.
Have a great time with this, kids get SUPER competitive! :)
