Looking for a resource to help assess what your students hear in regards to instruments and families of the orchestra? This set contains multiple versions of clip it cards (in color and in Black & White), 2 scoreboards (4 & 5 people team options), and five certificates. My students LOVE to compete against one another and this activity really helps them focus on recognizing the sounds of the instrument families and individual instruments! This can be used as a center/workstation or with your whole class at one time. I've even included details on how I use this with the entire class at one time. This file contains two pdf files so you will need Adobe Acrobat to open them.

You will need to purchase spring style (a.k.a. pinch type) clothes pins (1-4 per student) to use this resource (though paper clips could also work, the clothes pins will be easier for younger students to grasp). I even found some adorable mini's at Wal-Mart! This file is in PDF form.
