Afraid you can't get your upper elementary students to listen to classical music? Sure they won't like it? Give me three class periods to bust that myth! Students learn the language of the arts first hand as they experience Mussourgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition" and create their own art from his music. Learning targets include tone color, mood, how culture affects art, and how visual art and music share a similar language. I've seen some of my most troublesome students completely engaged in listening and responding to great music, presented in a way that they can connect to. On top of all that, it gives you a great opportunity to collaborate with other fine arts teachers. Enjoy!
