The Music of Frederic Chopin - WebQuest and Music Composition Project

The Music of Frederic Chopin - WebQuest and Music Composition Project

In this lesson, students learn fun facts about Frederic Chopin 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 Chopin’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 Frederic Chopin WebQuest Activity (print and Editable digital files included) • Fun Facts about Frederic Chopin WebQuest Answer Key • Creating Music in Chopin’s Style using Soundation
