Animal themed music centers for rhythm! The animals are in trouble and need your help! You have to quickly arrange each rhythm card into an order you like and read the rhythm before the zookeeper catches you! Help animals in the barnyard, grasslands, forest, and more!

For this center/activity just print off the rhythm cards that you want to use, laminate, and cut apart (there are several different levels of rhythmic difficulty). Then have students arrange rhythms on the task card pages to create their own rhythms!

This product includes:

*6 different animal habitat-themed task cards.

*120 different rhythm cards to use in centers. Rhythm groupings include quarter/eighth notes and rest, half notes/rest, sixteenth notes, eighth-sixteenth note pairings. See preview for more detail.

*Use as individual activities, small group learning, in learning centers, or leave for a substitute teacher.
