This Smart Notebook Lesson is appropriate for elementary music students of all ages and is part 6 of a 9 part unit. In this lesson, students will follow a listening map as they hear the Arabian dancers gracefully and mystically glide throughout the piece. Students will listen for entrances of instruments and groups of instruments and observe the order that this occurs in. Students will be expected to recall this order as well as the mood this piece creates. Included in this lesson is a YouTube link to a short video clip of the Russian Mariinsky Ballet Company performing this elegant, mystical dance. Extension ideas could include talking about the tempo and dynamics of the piece, the timbre of the instruments used in the piece, etc. This lesson is also available in a BUNDLE KIT in my TpT store that includes all 9 lessons at a discounted price when purchased as a BUNDLE.
