This Jazz Lesson interactive whiteboard learning file was inspired by one of my TPT buyers who needed a quality jazz presentation for her upper elementary students in notebook form. This file presents jazz history with an interactive timeline, information about nine influential jazz musicians, a music genre exploration game and thought provoking discussion activities within the 23 colorful, quality pages. There is lots of room for the teacher to use his or her own expertise, and to lead thoughtful discussions leading to deeper understanding of music and the influence jazz has on music we listen to every day. In addition there are several links to short movies portraying performing musicians from different jazz eras. If you've been looking for a fun way to present jazz to your students, you've found it here!
Make sure you have Notebook Software on your computer before your purchase or download this file.
