This Instrument Workstations set is packed to help your students learn about the four musical families (strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion). It DOES include my Play Dough Mats for Instruments. Additional items (such as Instrument Go Fish, Headband Game, Coloring Pages and Puzzles) can be purchased separately OR you can obtain all of these (at a significant savings) with the Musical Instrument Workstations Mega Bundle
. There is also a Musical Instrument Workstations Mini Bundle
that includes this resource along with the Go Fish Game (works as Headband Game too), as well as the instrument families version of puzzles and coloring pages). The difference between the two bundles is that the mega version contains everything in the mini bundle PLUS the coloring pages and puzzles for “individual instruments.” This workstation resource was updated on 7-4-2018 so if you previously purchased it - re-download the file to get the updates. FYI the page count total DOES NOT include ore reflect the pages for the PowerPoint and Google Slides that are included as well (at no extra cost).:)

Extra Materials You May Find Yourself Needing:
✔ headbands, crayons, markers and/or colored pencils (or have your students bring their own), play dough (I actually made mine…)
✔ For Build an Instrument Workstation: empty tissue boxes, rubber bands of different thicknesses, scissors, plastic straws, empty paper towel rolls, Styrofoam cups, plastic “Solo” cups, a carpenter nail or something pointy to poke hole in bottom of cup, yarn strips cut into 18” pieces, paper clips, paper towels and a small bit of water to wet paper towels
❤ I have also used fun games such as Don’t Spill the Beans and Don’t Break the Ice (instrument versions). I have created a special set of cards that allow you to use these parlor games in multiple ways for music. You can see them here.
