Orchestra Charades is a fun, interactive game to give kids a break from the normal learning environment while still assessing student learning of orchestra vocabulary. I have included two sets of cards on the following pages: cards with pictures and the keyword and cards with keyword only. There are 22 keywords included in the game. Just cut them out, and you’re ready to play!

This is great if you have a few minutes left at the end of class, want to reward a class for good behavior, or if you need a quick, easy sub plan.

This resource includes:

  • Game for printing. This is a PDF document. It works well printed in color or black and white.
  • Video to introduce the game and review the instruments used in the game. Great for sub!
  • Graphics for teaching the instruments in the game in PowerPoint and PDF.
  • Thanks page with suggested resources.
