This lesson will meet all your National Standards for music- students listen, move, compose, play, and sing while learning about Gustav Holst's Planet Suite and the solar system! Especially great if your students are learning about the solar system in class.
This smart board lesson includes:
*14 slides of pictures, interesting facts, instruments, and special elements used in each of the movements from "The Planets"
*Movement ideas and topics of discussion for each planet
*A quarter and eighth note composition activity for the class using "space rhythms"
*Rhythmic notation for ostinatos and other ideas to create your own song about "Earth" as a class. Your students will love brainstorming sounds they hear in nature and taking musical ownership!
*Check out my handouts and additional activities to go along with "The Planets:" http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/The-Planets-Holst-Elementary-Music-Lesson
