Product Description
These active listening strategies with Olympic themes and national anthems will engage your students in exploring and enjoying ceremonial and patriotic music. Celebrate international summer sports competitions such as the Summer Olympics with these engaging activities. The marching and movement activities can be used as an ‘opening ceremony’ for additional “Music Olympics” activities. I will be posting Summer Games Music Centers soon. Note: This set is similar to my Winter Games Listening and Movement Strategies (but slightly expanded).

This set includes three lesson plans with printables and projectables:
