Here students notate their intervals with skittles


Math, Music  



Title – Tasty Intervals
By – Michele Slone
Primary Subject – Music
Secondary Subjects – Math
Grade Level – 6

Materials Needed:

  • Staff cards,
  • Skittles


      In practicing reading intervals on the staff, each student receives a treble clef staff card (a laminated piece of card stock with a treble clef staff on it).
    Give each student two skittles. Name an interval to the students, i.e. a 6th up. The students must then notate that interval using their skittles on the lines and/or spaces. If a student has the interval correct, they receive another skittle to eat at the end of the lesson. If they don’t, correct it with the student. At the end of the class, the students get to eat all of the skittles they have earned, plus the two skittles they used for notation.
