“The Case of the Rhythm Pirates' Treasure” is a Smart Notebook game that helps students review the rhythms with a fun mystery. It’s especially fun because of its pirate theme. The following rhythms are covered in this game: whole note, dotted half note, half note, quarter note, eighth note, and sixteenth note. Students have to solve clues to make their way through four levels: L1 - matching the symbol to its name; L2 - reviewing the symbols' names and matching them to how many beats they each have; (PPT Version does not have L3) L3 - matching a recorded rhythm pattern to the written pattern; L4 - adding the values of different rhythms in a "music math" game. These levels should be done in order but can be used separately throughout the year.

This resource includes two files of this game, one for PowerPoint and one for SMART Notebook.

The story for this game keeps the students engrossed in learning. In the game, they meet a music detective who is given the task of finding a rhythm pirate ship's treasure. They follow a treasure map, enter a castle, maneuver through tunnels, and show off their rhythm skills to a ship captain. When they have completed the four levels, they win a reward for finding the treasure and give it to a museum.

This game takes 30-60 minutes depending on your students' age and level of skill, and how long you spend on review. (I included a page for review). This lesson would be most appropriate and enjoyable for advanced 2nd graders up to 6th grade.
