This is a really fun lesson where students make Raps on the life of French classical composer Erik Satie.
For the lesson you need:
I first did this with Year 8’s but I think that it could be used with year 4-7 as well.
This is a great cover lesson that can be delivered by a non specialist.
Designed for a room with computer access but could be adapted so that the “presentation” is a poster on A3.
Students create a presentation on a song of their choice explaining the reasons why they like the song.
Presentation gives a model to the students so they know what to write.
This is a lesson where students create their own Body Percussion routines to the tune of “In the Hall of the Mountain King.”
Powerpoint features links to instructional videos in the notes.
I have taught this lesson to year 4 - 7’s.
Feel free to take out any slides you don’t need.
Fun Body Percussion lesson which teaches students how to perform the “Hands Challenge” from Tik Tok.
This has been successful with Year 7 students but I believe that it could also work with younger students.
