This is a great activity to practice writing and performing rhythms & pitches. Students LOVE getting to create their own melodies and take ownership in this activity. There are many ways to use these materials. I do this activity with 2nd grade, but you can certainly modify it to fit many grade levels. Students spin to see what rhythms to use and then spin to see which pitches to play. Students record the results using standard notation and then practice and perform their melody on an Orff instrument. Best of luck and HAVE FUN! Great for centers as well.
