Product Description
We know all percussion instruments aren't made the same. Some are struck, rung, hit, shook, or scraped. But do the students know the difference between a pitched and an unpitched instrument?

After a brief video review on instruments, students will be given about 10 popsicle sticks (the ones you use for your build your quarter and eighth note patterns!) and asked to take a seat on the floor.

You will play 8 examples of pitched and unpitched percussion and they will have to spell out the right answer on the floor by making a "P" for pitched or "U" for unpitched.

After they lock in their answer, you may reveal it on the powerpoint (animations included) or PDF. Kids love it!

Included are the following

8 mp3 examples of pitched and unpitched percussion instruments
1 percussion introduction video
Fonts and installation instructions
1 Powerpoint File
1 PDF file

Have fun with this! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me -- jasonlitt@gmail.com
