Here is a fun Halloween music activity that you can do with your class using your outdoor musical instruments that will teach rhythm while scaring the pants off them! Sounds thrilling? Take a look!
It is a familiar game, similar to ‘What’s The Time Mr Wolf’, but with musical instruments, uses listening skills and has a Halloween twist!
Their task — or the "trick" — is to match the rhythm with the character shown on the cards.
A little preparation is required. Before playing the game you need to print the rhythm cards from the Halloween rhythm sheet below. Mount the sheet on card and cut it into five, for the different characters.
Spend a little time teaching, demonstrating and practicing each character’s rhythm, so that the children can begin to recognise which character is which.
Please feel free to make up your own rules according to the age of your students.
Have a safe and happy Halloween.
