Use lions and lambs in March to get your students' creative juices flowing. Students can rearrange the pictures as a class, in groups, or individually to compose short rhythmic pieces that will lead to eighth note and quarter note literacy. Students can "think-pair-share" their compositions with their classmates, as well as perform other students' pieces.
There are images that are just the animal (lion, lamb) and images that have the notation superimposed on top to assist with progression from words and images to traditional notation. I would suggest giving each student or group 4 of each of the images so that they can easily come up with one (or two!) different four beat patterns.
