This is a matching game, where students will match the instrument with a child playing the same instrument. This will help students recognize classroom rhythm instruments and instruments of the orchestra and how they are played. Students place the cards in 4 rows of four face down. Students take turns turning over two cards at a time trying to match the instrument with the musician playing that instrument.
Download the game and print on double sided card stock (borderless) and laminate for best results!
When using with young children (K-1) , I suggest splitting the game up into five mini games and putting into ziplock bags. The students then only have to match 8 instruments/musicians at a time. when they complete the first baggie, they switch to a different bag (group of 8 instruments/musicians) I am including a second set of colored cards with colored dots on the back so that you can sort them into the mini games faster. Also included is a black and white set to save on colored ink.
I hope your students enjoy them as much as mine did!
