Musical 4 Corners (en français) is a great, interactive PowerPoint game for reinforcing instrument families (brass, woodwinds, strings, percussion/keyboards). The game has been translated into French and I've also included 2 versions: one where keyboard instruments are their own category, and another where keyboard instruments are part of the percussion family (organ is with woodwinds).
There are 36 instruments used in this activity and there are also LOTS of slides so the game can be played for 5 minutes or 20.
Although most my 4 Corners games have audio clips, this one does not because I don't have samples available for every instrument that's included. Instead of an audio clip, the center button will direct students to find the woodwind, brass, percussion, or keyboard instrument.
Here is the English version if you are interested.
A favorite indoor recess game at my school is "4 Corners."
Students sneak to a corner by the count of 10 and another player with their eyes closed calls out a corner number and the players standing in that corner are out.
I've modified the game so that each corner is an instrument.
Instead of having an "it" person, you can just play the embedded audio timer clip. The next slide will show an instrument in every corner. The students standing in the corner that matches the instrument family labeled in the center of the slide are out.
