The Drum Beats For is a whole class game that's an active and fun way to reinforce aural recognition of syncopated rhythms. The PPT contains embedded mp3 files with 40 slides and there is no winner so the game can be played for any length of time.
This game requires students to aurally identify 8th-quarter-8th rhythmic patterns on their cards and change seats with classmates. My students love this game and I'll pull it out for the last five minutes of class as a review. Then, on their way out, the class will drop of their cards in a basket or hand them to me as we say goodbye.
This is part of a bundle which includes the following versions in Standard & Stick Notation:
