ELL language: Spanish
This worksheet is designed to help English Language Learners practice their English skills while learning about the instruments of the orchestra.
Directions are presented in both English and Spanish. The first side of the worksheet is to name the four primary string instruments of the orchestra. This can be done using the String Family ELL Slideshow. Then there are four basic questions (posed in English and Spanish) for students to answer (in English). The second side of the worksheet includes questions for which students must use the vocabulary box at the top of the page to write a sentence (in English) for each instrument about how it sounds.
Teaching tip: After students complete the worksheet, ask students to read both the questions and full answers out loud. This may take some encouragement for students who are reluctant to try reading out loud in English.
