If you're in the neighborhood of comparing and contrasting rhythms, this interactive activity may be for you and your younger kids!
In "It's the Same Difference!", two students are called to the Interactive White Board and compete against each other (the default title is Team 1, Team 2, but you can do boys vs girls, colors, etc).
Two melodic figures are played back to back and the students will then drag (using the IWB pan) a "SAME" box or "DIFFERENT" box to their respective answer box and lock in their answer.
Advance the slide and the answer is displayed! The rotation goes 9 more times with more students permitted to come to the IWB.
This activity can be modified and does not need to be used on an IWB. Students can be split into groups, write on personal whiteboards, or can call answers independently.
If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to leave them in the section. Thank you!
