These engaging listening and movement activities are an excellent connection and celebration of international winter sports competitions or the Winter Olympics. Engage your students in active listening and movement to explore some of the most majestic music ever written. Explore the form and melody (solfege) of Leo Arnaud's "Bugler's Dream," the inspiring elements of John William's "Call of the Champions," and unique characteristics of national anthems from around the world. Two pages of detailed teaching strategies are included, as well as form mapping and melody mapping cards, Greek word cards (citius, altius, fortius), a link to my online (streaming) Spotify playlist, and a world map and country list for the national anthems activity.
The marching and movement activities can be used as an ‘opening ceremony’ for additional winter games music activities such as my ”Winter Games for the Music Classroom” and “Winter Games Composition Activities."
