This video game music unit is a great way to engage upper elementary and middle school students and get them composing, listening, analyzing, and thinking about music! Students will learn about videogame composers by watching videos of interviews, analyze music from video games and discuss various aspects of music and sound in video games, and then create their own video game and the music to go with it!
Included in this unit:
PowerPoint slides, which can be projected on a screen, used on a SmartBoard, or printed out (slides include links to interviews with famous video game composers, on-task reminders for students with each step of the project to remind them of what they should be doing, discussion questions and prompts, directions for the project, plus a blank slide to add your own)
PDF teacher notes, with suggestions and tips for teaching the project in a whole-class, small group, or individualized format
Word document (fully editable) worksheets for students to use in creating their video game and the music to accompany it (also in PDF version)
Word document (fully editable) letter home with links to free online software for students to code real videogames (also in PDF version)
Please note that, due to the variety of resources offered in this file, the download comes in a zipped file.
