PowerPoint Presentation*
All Audio and Video Clips Automatically Inserted in Slide Show*

Students start the lesson out by listening to the Piece "Take 5". After listening, students then watch a video of a group of adults demonstrating how the game they will play is done.

PowerPoint then guides the student each of the 5 step actions they will take when they are in a circle. Each of the 5 actions result in a stuffed animal (or object of your choice) getting passed to the student next to them clock-wise.

PowerPoint then instructs students to circle up, and the audio track starts them off at a slow pace. When students begin to get a hang of it, you may hit next slide which will bring them to a medium pace, and then fast pace.

After students have mastered the game, the PowerPoint instructs them to get with a partner and create a handshake that includes a 5-step movement. Students then practice making their own handshakes to the Take 5 piece.

It is a great experience for students to understand that all music isn't just 4/4 and 3/4!
