This interactive music notebook is a great tool for assessing middle school (5th and 6th grade) music students while encouraging creativity and ownership of learning. This file can be used in a variety of ways, including as traditional interactive notebook pages, worksheets, assessments, differentiated activities, evidence of learning, and more. Also included is an editable version, so that you can customize student directions and/or adjust music terminology to fit your needs!
This product is designed for use by professional music educators. Non-musicians may need further assistance in order to be most successful. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
