This is a song and activity to help you engage your students' interest in a lesson.
The activity is simple: the teacher has a box with a hidden object inside, and the students must guess what it is. The object is related to the lesson, and when it is revealed, the teacher makes the connection to what the students will be learning about. This is a highly motivating activity for students of all ages.
What makes this product different? It includes a song. Geared toward primary students, the song is sung by the teacher and/or students before the guessing game. It is like a theme song for the game. It could even be sung between guesses.
Music teachers may choose to use the lyrics "Magic music box," while teachers of other subjects may choose to use the lyrics "Fun surprise box."
