Graphic Score Bingo Card Game with Audio for Music Lessons

(4)
These are graphic score bingo cards complete with audio recordings ( MP3s). There are 16 unique bingo cards (1 per page in a PDF document). Each bingo card has 16 small graphic scores on it and the pack comes with 16 audio recordings of the music featured on the cards. This is a great activity for KS3 and KS4 classes and work particularity well when teaching students about notation or the musical elements. Useful as as a starter or plenary activity or even as a starting point for a whole lesson. Simply print off the bingo cards, hand out to students (I get students to work in pairs), select the audio files at random and let the students work out which graphic score best fits what they are hearing. Make your own rules for bingo or have students come up with their own. Simply laminate them to use them time and time again. *Update August 2017* The pack now comes with an additional pack of 16 bingo cards which have four of the shapes removed on each card. This means students have to work out if they actually have the shape on their card before they can mark them off, rather than assuming that what they hear will automatically be on their card. These cards can be played alongside the original game and is a good way to stretch more able students. You can also use the cards as a performing activity before hearing the audio files. Ask students to try and work out what the graphic scores will sound like using their voice or an instrument. As a composing activity, there is a blank card that you can get students to compose their own ideas and create their own graphic scores for. Any feedback would be greatly received. Let me know how you got on with it and I welcome any suggestions for improvements.
