The Four Seasons Listening Glyphs - Draw or Color

Students will enjoy listening glyphs of Antonio Vivaldi’s The 4 Seasons because it’s a calm activity where students got to spread out throughout your classroom and color or draw while listening to Baroque music. I’ve also added a drawing pages for every movement, which includes the sonnets that coincides with them. It’s a great introduction to programmatic music where students can relate what they hear, to the sonnet.
