Tired of broken pins on your xylophones? This SMART Notebook file will help teach students to properly use the Orff instruments in class. It encourages the use of a 'helicopter lift' technique when removing bars (reminding students to lift bars straight up and not to bend the pins). It includes a video of a helicopter lifting off, three interactive slides with removable xylophone bars and posters you can print for your classroom.
Scales included on the interactive slides are:
C pentatonic = remove 'burgers and fries'
F pentatonic = remove 'bacon and eggs'
G pentatonic = remove 'Cokes and fries'
