PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

“The Case of the Lost Orchestra” helps students review the instruments of the orchestra and instrument families with a fun mystery. It’s especially fun because of its “Where’s Waldo” look. Students have to solve clues to decipher which instrument the conductor is talking about and then have to find that instrument in the “Where’s Waldo” page. This is the Smart Notebook Version.

The story for this game keeps the students engrossed in learning. In the game, they meet a music detective who is called to help a conductor reassemble his orchestra. The orchestra had been playing Haydn’s “Surprise” Symphony, and the fortissimo chord scared them so much they run back stage and end up in a giant, chaotic pile of instruments, people, and even some animals! The conductor is so distressed he can only talk in code, so he has to tell the detective which instruments to collect and put back on stage. Some of the clues reference “Peter and the Wolf,” which my kids especially like because they have to think back to when they were younger.

Students click on the instruments in the pile after discussing in teams or as a class which instrument the conductor describes. When clicked, the instrument then goes into an orchestra seating chart, so students can map their progress.

This game takes two to three 30-minute classes if you include a short review of the instruments in each family (I included a page each for each of the four families). This lesson would be most appropriate and enjoyable for 2nd graders up to 6th grade.
