Mystery tunes are great activities that can be used to reinforce music reading skills.
Each worksheet contains 3 mystery tunes. After students identify the notes on the staff, they work on playing the excerpt on an instrument. Students then try to identify the title of the song they are playing.
This package contains 6 mystery tunes worksheets. Three of these worksheets contain an excerpt from easily identifiable songs (ex: Mary Had a Little Lamb, Hot Cross Buns, etc...). In addition, there is one worksheet that only contains excerpts of Christmas music, and one worksheet that contains patriotic music. There is even a blank worksheet for you to create your own mystery tune!
This activity can work well with a whole class, or in smaller stations.
