This fun, ANIMATED game is a great note name review and loads of fun! Perfect for the end-of-year to keep up student engagement and learning. This music game is a great activity for a non-music sub. Just press play and go! Each slide contains music notes in the treble clef staff and bass clef staff. This is convenient for those that teach both treble clef and bass clef instruments simultaneously. Appropriate for upper elementary and middle school music, including band, choir and orchestra.

**Note:This game is the exact same as our Winter Note Name Speed Races, but with a new summer theme! Perfect for an end-of-year note name review! Students will love the fun surfing and beach backgrounds.**

Ways to Use this Game:

∗ Large class game- display game on your classroom projector screen for a large group. This game can be played with any number of students!

∗ Student Assessment- because this game is “hands off” for the teacher, this allows you to move around the room during the game to see if any students need individual help.

∗ Centers- have a computer set up in the room and let students work in pairs, rotating to this game as a station

∗ Sub plan- use this game as a fun and easy sub plan! All the sub has to do is press play and go!

∗ Competition- award students based off of how many answers they get correct. Ex: Gold medal for 100% correct, silver medal for 95% correct and bronze medal for 90% correct.
