The Music of George Gershwin - WebQuest and Music Composition Project

The Music of George Gershwin - WebQuest and Music Composition Project

In this lesson, students learn fun facts about George Gershwin and his music as they complete a WebQuest (Internet Scavenger Hunt) to answer questions about the topic. Then, they use that knowledge to create a music composition of their own, using Gershwin's style, using Soundation, a free Web 2.0 music creation and editing program. A complete answer key is provided for the WebQuest for easy grading, along with resources for both teachers and students. The student questions are included in both a print version and a digital (editable) version to make it easy for students to complete the lesson digitally or on paper. Also included are tutorial links to assist students with the software for the music project. This lesson was designed for middle school (grades 6-8) but could be used in upper elementary as well. Files included: • Teacher & Student Resources • Fun Facts about George Gershwin WebQuest Activity (print and Editable digital files included) • Fun Facts about George Gershwin WebQuest Answer Key • Creating Music in Gershwin’s Style using Soundation

Chess Set Classroom Game Board

Chess Set Classroom Game Board

Imagine a game where the challenge and skirmish is governed based on experience and knowledge of the game without using luck as its driving source. Yes, a game played that is not determined by the roll of the dice, swiping up or down, or flipping a card. This game is called chess. Since before the 6th century AD, chess is considered to be one of the oldest games ever invented. Today your students probably think chess is old and boring, right. A game that has best left in the dark old days before PlayStation and Angry Birds? But wait! This chess set is like none other. This chess set is large-scaled, highly visual, and even glows in the dark. Each piece has its own light embedded which illuminates the entire game board in complete darken. This chess set will look great in your classroom! All you need to do is watch how your students flock towards it. In this package you will receive the templates for each chess piece even the board in which they lie. This is a great chess set to learn how to play the game and in style. Looking at each piece in detail, on their backside, you can see a brief description of how it moves as well as an illustration. This is very helpful for new players. With the lights turned off, the instructions can also be read even more so. On the top of each piece shows a side view which makes it very helpful if you want to play looking down at the board. All you have to do is cut, laminate and hot glue a LED light to each piece and you are ready to go. This project is fun especially if you work with your students to build it. Assembling the game board is self-fulfilling and even therapeutic if you like DYI projects. The quality is amazing and you will never find a chess set that is so innovative and unique!

Borders to use in your Powerpoint Resources Free

Borders to use in your Powerpoint Resources Free

This resource contains 20 plus borders that you can use for free in your Powerpoint resources. They are meant for older children, and adults. This is my first attempt at creating borders. I couldn't find what I was looking for to meet my needs on this site. Most borders on here are great, but too childish for my audience. This is why I have created a free product to see what you think. I would really appreciate your feedback on these. I have also included instructions on how to use these borders with Powerpoint. They are PNG files that need to be inserted and then possibly minor adjustments to sizing depending on your computer setup. I hope you enjoy using them. Please let me know what you think by emailing compcoachab@gmail.com.
