This set of seven Olympic-style music activities for center rotations (and adaptable to larger teams/ whole-class participation) is a great way to engage students, improve or assess skills, and celebrate winter sports. This will provide an excellent and enjoyable connection to the upcoming Winter Olympics, but it may be used during any winter season. Create and celebrate your own 'Music Olympics.'
This package includes musical versions of Slalom, Luge, Aerials, curling, ice hockey, speed skating, and ski jumping; as well as links to videos and websites to enhance this activity. I have included clear directions for printing and setting up centers, instruction cards and printables for students, and answer keys where needed.
