This set of visuals can be used as a vocal warm up to explore melodic contour. Print out the cards or project on the board and trace the trail of the butterfly with your finger while students vocalize to match the contour. Experienced classes can have one student vocalize a card at random while the class listens and discerns which card was performed. Students will enjoy singing the cards upside down as well (double the value)!
Also included is a blackline worksheet so that students can design their own vocal contour, either individually on paper or as a class when the image is projected on the board.
