This Thanksgiving-themed activity set focuses on the 5 Orff-Schulwerk rhythmic building blocks. Students will demonstrate knowledge of rhythmic speech patterns and duple meter through composition activities. Rhythmic puzzles are great for centers. Word sort requires students to determine the rhythm of Thanksgiving foods. Two speech piece composition graphic organizers - one with an included ostinato - allows students to expand compositions into 4-measure pieces on different lyrical themes. A bulletin board is included with an opportunity for an interactive expansion activity.
