This is a great activity to practice performing rhythms and 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 4th grade, but you can certainly modify it to fit other grade levels. Students spin to see what rhythms to use and then spin to see what pitches to use. Students record the results using standard notation and then practice and perform their melody. Best of luck and HAVE FUN! Great for centers as well.
