Explore unpitched instruments in music class using the cumulative story "The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything" by Linda Williams. These visuals accompany the book by adding an instrument to each of the parts needed to build the scarecrow mentioned in the story and will remind students when and how to play their instrument part. A favorite activity of young musicians, this works well as part of your (non-Halloween) autumn unit or even as a mini-concert during your school's literature night. Lesson plan included.
