This resource provides your music students with a non-intimidating approach to composition using body percussion and other sounds we can create using just our bodies (no instruments required).

Students receive a sheet of 32 boxes, 28 of which have sounds written on them, and 4 of which are left blank for them to be able to create their own ideas. These boxes are cut up and placed on the composition grid of 16 boxes, each representing a measure of music. They will choose a time signature and tempo, then practice their composition and make changes until they are happy with it. There are extension ideas to do things like perform for their families, teach their song to others, or connect on video chat to share their composition.

If you have students who do not have the technology to be able to print these, they could very easily make it themselves with any paper they may have lying around.
