What educators are saying

I purchased almost all of these activities, because my students love them so much, and the work is all done for me! (I didn't have to find all the musical examples and make it myself!)
This really helped teach the concept of beat vs rhythm both in the classroom and through distance learning. Very helpful!

Looking for an engaging Thanksgiving music activity for your elementary music lesson that will reinforce aurally identifying if there is only the beat or if there is rhythm too? This digital resource is an excellent addition to your November music lesson plans or anytime you are working on music opposites. Plus, it will work on tablets and Web Browsers. Engaging music game for centers, whole group instruction, music sub tubs or distance learning!

The resource is included in a bundle: Thanksgiving Music ~ Interactive Music Opposites Games Bundle {Turkey Antics}. Click on the product link or the preview button for additional details. Consider purchasing the bundle to save money!

The product contains 15 student interactive slides. Each slide has several sound effects and animations. Students will click on the turkey to hear a sound. They will then click on the word (beat or rhythm) that represents what they hear! Students will know immediately without leaving the page if they are correct. Watch their eyes light up as the turkey dances across the page when they are correct! Perfect addition to your Orff lessons and Kodaly lessons.

An excellent observation or assessment tool to see which students might be struggling with the concept.

The game was designed to be projected onto your SmartBoard, Promethian, Mimio or Interactive Whiteboard and will run on both PC and Mac computers using your default internet browser. It is also compatible for tablets! In addition, the PowerPoint version of the game has been included in the purchase as another option for utilizing the product. Until TpT supports this file type I have stored the data files on a separate server which allows the graphics and sound effects to remain secure. You will be able to access the game and assessment via a provided link. Upon purchase please read the document titled "1 READ FIRST INFORMATION" for detailed instructions.

Feel free to check out the preview which is a sample of the PowerPoint version of the product. TpT has size restrictions on previews and I am unable to offer a preview of the Web Browser version of the product. If you would like to see it please email me at and I will be more than happy to accommodate you.
