Every math and music lesson should be this engaging and enjoyable!
Hands-on musical activities for exploring ratios
Animated slides to guide activities
Two-page teaching guide plus one printable
Music literacy – explore beat, meter, tempo, rhythm, melody, form, texture
Math literacy – explore ratios, fractions and multiples
Read rhythm and melody
Play Boomwhackers® or bells, chant and tap rhythm
Compose and perform ostinatos (patterns)
Tested, successful techniques and activities
Note: Although Boomwhackers® are recommended, these activities can be adapted to singing and body percussion (stamp, pat, clap, snap), bells, or pipe chimes for the hands-on, and a string insturment (guitar, violin, etc.) would work well for demonstrating pitch relationships (for fractions/harmonics).
