Title – Music Concentration

Subject – Music

Grade Level – 2-5

This is a component of a lesson plan I’ve done. It represents the culmination of a unit through a game. The game is a review of the content of the lesson and will prepare students for a quiz. I am sending this game because it can be adapted to any lesson.

HERE GOES>>>>

My game is called CONCENTRATION….

A. Prepare 20 blank thick pages with large numbers 1 through 20 printed on them

B. Underneath you will write musical terms, composers or instruments of the orchestra, etc. (whatever unit you are working on) and corresponding matches for each on the “flip side” upside down each number. (OR you could just places answers on the chalkboard underneath each number)

C. Line the numbers up in rows of 5 pages each 1-20 on the chalkboard or any other space accommodating this game.

          

To further explain, let me give you a sample game with all the corresponding matches:

1. sound                                                  11. loudness of sound

2. volume                                                  12. anything heard

3. pitch                                                  13. width of the vibrations

4. timbre                                                  14. highness of sound

5. frequency                                        15. speed of the vibrations                    

6. amplitude                                        16. quality in sound

7. decibels                                        17. movement back and forth

8. vibrations                                        18. units of loudness

9. noise                                                  19. organized sound

10. music                                                  20. unorganized sound

(NUMBERS 10 & 19 MATCH; NUMBERS 5 AND 15 MATCH; ETC., ETC.,)

D. Students will be divided into two teams. You decide how you choose who is first. Perhaps you could flip a coin. Students can discuss their choice of matches in a group and decide upon a spokesperson to give the answer. If the match is correct the team gets a point. Alternate teams for answers.

E. At the end you will have two numbers left. They are matches of course but the students will have to tell you exactly what each number says and this is considered BONUS points. (Perhaps 5 points to the team who guesses correctly) This could be done on paper so that each team gets a chance to answer for bonus points.

F. The winning team is the team with the most points!!

THIS IS BY FAR THE EASIEST GAME I HAVE EVER DONE AND IT CAPTIVATES THE KIDS. THEY LOVE IT!!!

DO VARIATIONS ON IT IF YOU WANT. THERE ARE MANY POSSIBILITIES. LET ME KNOW HOW IT GOES!!! (OR CONTACT ME IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE DIRECTIONS)

GOOD LUCK!!!!!
