Triple meter in music can be scary to teach. We feel in twos and fours instead of threes because we have two feet. But, triple meter doesn't have to be a frightening monster with "Trick or Treat Triple Meter Music Listening Activities". The packet includes PowerPoint/Google Slides/PDF slides and two reproducibles. Get your kids to feel meters in three using the Danse Macabre listening map. Get the wiggles out with Stomp the Spider and Waltz of the Skeletons. There is even a paper-pencil assessment with an answer key, making the worksheet great for a substitute.

Packet includes:

  • Slides with information on Saint-Saens, a "Danse Macabre" listening map, and "The Waltz of the Skeletons" movement guide (non-locomotor) in PowerPoint, Google Slides, and PDF formats.
  • A teachers' guide with directions to "Spider Stomp", worksheet master, answer key, and links to all the music needed on Spotify and the force copy link to the Google slide.
  • Music used:
    *Danse Macabre
    *Waltz of the Skeletons

  • The music that is not in triple meter is part of one of the activities.
