This game that helps students review the rhythms with a fun mystery. It’s especially fun because of its pirate theme.
The following rhythms are covered in this game: whole note, dotted half note, half note, quarter note, eighth note, and sixteenth note. Students have to solve clues to make their way through a castle of riddles and answer questions to raise the mast of their boat. In the castle level, they have to identify the name of the note by sight and how many beats each note has. In the boat level, students use their knowledge of note values to add the values of different rhythms in a "music math" game.
The story for this game keeps the students engrossed in learning. In the game, they meet a music detective who is given the task of finding a rhythm pirate ship's treasure. They follow a treasure map, enter a castle, maneuver through a room of riddles, and show off their rhythm skills to a ship captain. When they have completed the levels, they find the treasure and win a reward for giving it to a museum.
This game takes one to two 30-minute classes if you include a short review of the rhythms (I included a page for review). This lesson would be most appropriate and enjoyable for 2nd graders up to 6th grade.
