Looking for something fun to do with 2nd-5th graders at Halloween? Try this fun listening activity based on the standards for elementary music. Use the music, In the Hall of the Mountain King by Edvard Grieg to teach crescendo, acclerando, tempo, and mood in music. Your students will be challenged to turn the repetitive rhythm pattern used by Grieg into a fun way to play instruments. So . . . turn off the lights, create a spooky mood, and have fun! Your students will ask for this activity long after Halloween.
The rhythm pattern is included in the download.
