Title – line up game using floor staff

Primary Subject – Music
Secondary Subjects –
Grade Level – 1-5
To do this activity you will need to have a “floor staff” (that’s a staff made out of masking tape on the floor). It needs to be large enough that your entire class can stand on it.
After teaching the students the names of the notes you can play this line-up game: Tell all of the students to pick a note on the staff and stand on it. They cannot change notes once they have picked one.
You will need to write the names of the notes of little pieces of paper and put them in a hat. (For instance “e on a line”). When all of the children are in place, draw a note out of the hat and those children will be line leaders. Continue until all of the notes are drawn out of the hat and everyone is in line.
NO MORE FIGHTING OVER PLACES IN LINE!!!
