Need a fun way to assess rhythm and melody or a fun way to review rhythmic and melodic concepts at the end of the year or the beginning of the year? Then try this Musical take on America's Favorite summer sport!
This file contains two main different ways to play Music Baseball:
1. Playing via a PowerPoint Presentation (62 pages in length)
2. Playing with pitching and batting cards. (14 patterns for each of the following: single, double, triple and homerun hits)
Within each of these games are differentiation strategies and ways to tailor the game to meet the musical abilities of your students. Within each game you can differentiate to challenge all of your students on their own ability levels.
The pitching and batting cards can also be used as flashcards or to play baseball poison. Additionally, beat strips and 5-line staff templates are included and directions on how to use them in conjunction with the baseball game are included.
