This all-inclusive quick-print resource is designed to supplement a unit on instruments of the orchestra. Each activity includes instruments from all four families of the orchestra! Most of these activities are designed to be quick and easy-- they should take about 10-15 minutes-- and are designed to be easy to print and use in any music class.
