1. 2.

Environment: This activity will take place in the classroom. Goal:


1. To help students learn numerical concepts in relation to music 2. To help students learn teamwork 3. To develop Students listening skills

Objective:
1. Students will learn mathematic concepts using music and instruments. 2. Students will review counting of numbers and explore non-traditional items to make music. 3. By students listening to music and counting the beats, will help them to improve their spacial IQ.

Activity:
We will listen to selections of music and learn the beat counts for the songs. We will discuss the items found around the house that will be used as instruments and compare them to instruments used in the music we just listened to. Students will play instruments to each of the counts and play a portion of the song together.

Procedure:
1. Students listen to two selections of music, one using a 4 count beat and the other an eight count beat. 2. I will show the students how to clap out the beats once and then I will have the children clap out the beats to each set of counts. 3. I will give students chopsticks to beat on the table and straws to blow in. 4. We will discuss what each instrument, is in comparison to other instruments that are in the music we are listening to. 5. I will then have half of the children play their instrument to a 4 counts beat and then have the other half play their instruments to the 8 count beat.

Materials:
1. Construction paper with numbers showing the 4 count and 8 count 2. Pictures of several instruments that compare with the ones we have from household items. 3. Straws and chopsticks (many different items will work). 4. A metronome if you have one (I have one on my phone). 5. Two types of music as examples 6. A music player (I used my phone).

Measure:
1. Students will practice clapping the beats twice 2. Students will play instruments twice. 3. Students will play 1 minute of a song

Modifications:
Autism: a child with autism should like this activity because it involves repetitive beats. I would provide a ring of bells for this child or sand paper blocks because of the texture sound and feel of these items.

Vision: make sure student has items placed in front and have a Braille picture of the instruments (if thats available). Deaf/Hard of Hearing: Show the pictures of instruments and point to him when he is supposed to clap or use his instrument. Intellectual Disabilities: I have already broken up the directions into small segments but will repeat them as much as needed. Physical Disabilities: It depends on disability but in regards to being in a wheelchair, I would make sure he was pushed up to the table where the instruments are and watch him play with the others. Presentation: I presented this lesson tour our class.
