regularly incorporate student interests & cultural heritage;
differentiate instructional methods.
If students struggle with drawing an animal, ask them to write one word to describe the music
they heard.
If the student struggles with keeping a steady beat, have a person beside them
help them.
If a student is bored with the body movements, let them be the DJ and stop and
starting the music.

Hook: Engage students attention and focus on learning.

Personally meaningful and relevant.

Ask a handful of students if they know what an insect is and give examples
(If they dont know what an insect is, tell them and give them examples of insects)
Write the examples on the board (make sure bumblebee is on the board) and ask the
students to talk about words they think of when they think of each insect.

Tell the students you have a song for them to listen to and its about one of the insects on
the board

Anticipatory Set
Play the Flight of the Bumblebee
Give them a piece of paper and a crayon and ask them to draw or write the name of what
insect they think this piece is about.
Play it once more for the students
Ask each student to share their thoughts.
Tell them the name of the piece is called The Flight of the Bumblebee
Have a short discussion on why they think the music represents the bumblebee.
Ask about tempo and the dynamic of the piece
Ask the students to get ready to keep a beat. Youre the leader and you will start tapping
the beat (half time) lightly on your thighs. While the piece plays, we are going to count to 8 with
our inside voices and every 8 counts the person to the left (have everyone hold up left hand) is
going to be the leader and has to keep the steady beat. Practice without the piece once and then
plays with the music. Everyone should have the chance to be the leader.
Ask students where bees like to fly to? (The answer is flowers)
Do they like to fly in a straight line or do they go all over the place?
Split up the class in two groups.
On one side of the room, they will be flowers and the other side will be the bees. The
flowers will strike a pose and have to stay super still. The bees will travel around the flowers
while the music is playing. While the music is playing ask them to show movements that
represent the different dynamics as well. They cant make any noise because the music is
making the buzzing noise for them. The bees cant touch the flowers or any of the other bees.
Everyone must freeze when the music stops playing. After a couple times of stopping music, the
students will switch roles.
Everyone will go sit down on the floor
Hand out a short quiz for them to complete before they leave.

Balanced mix of question types. Utilizes Blooms
Taxonomy/Webbs Depth of Knowledge; high frequency; purposeful
& coherent; require active responses; balance based on
QUESTIONING/THINKING/P volunteers/non-volunteers, ability, & gender; lead to further inquiry
& self-directed learning. Implement four types of thinking
(Analytical, Practical, Creative, & Research-based) &
(embedded throughout)
Teach/Reinforce problem-solving types. Provide opportunities
for students to generate ideas & alternatives; analyze, evaluate &
explain information from multiple perspectives & viewpoints.
What is an insect? Describe words you associate with different types of insects. Describe the
tempo and dynamic of the piece. Describe how the piece represents a bumblebee.
