will be able to identify when a patter is clapped or said incorrectly as well.

*1-2 sentences of where this lesson fits into the unit

THis lesson is a fun and creative way to still teach students how to hear, determine, and
understand rhythm and the length of notes in music while also incorporating an Easter theme right

*​Meeting Needs of Diverse Learners, Learning styles & Multiple Intelligences

For those who cannot sit still for long or lost interest quickly, using them as a helper is a great way
to keep them engaged.

When students are not paying attention at the start, giving them reminders that there is a game at
the end and we want to make sure we pay attention so we have time to play the game.
Lesson Plan

Integration of Technology:

Songs and videos on youtube!

Assessment Plan:
*How will you collect evidence of learning? (​ observation, rubric, checklist, quiz, performance-based task)

Observation, can they identy the notes and patterns on the easter eggs.

Relevant Background Knowledge to Teach Lesson:

Students will have been learning the timing of each note and what they are called and will be able
to identify the single notes on the smaller easter eggs easily.

Introduction (7 minutes) Notes

*Include anticipatory set, sharing of lesson objectives, activate prior knowledge,etc. Timeline

Class begins with singing some bunny songs for the younger grades (Grades 1-3)

We will sing the​ Easter Bunny Song to the tune of wheels on the bus​ first, since it
goes over the movements and actions that are in Boom Chicka Boom Easter
Bunny. This is best with the Grade 1 & 2’s.

Then we will move onto ​Boom Chicka Boom Easter Bunny ​(or with Grade 3’s you
will start with this)

Once they are warmed up and have sung nice and loud, you will move into the
amazing, Easter Egg Note HUNT! The printable notes and rhythms will be ‘hidden’
throughout the room. (This is where you will start after getting your Grade 4 & 5’s

*Step by step - what is going to happen during the lesson?
(Include teacher modelling, student practice, check for understanding, etc.)

1. With the Egg notes hidden around the room, once they have all been found
(or most). You can have a discussion with the kids about the note on the
back of their egg(s). What kind of note is it? How many beats is it held for?
Does anyone have note they are unsure about?
2. Once you have gone through the different notes and alked about each one
and how long they are held for, you can move into the hot potatoe game.
There are larger printable eggs with rhythm patters on the back. They will
sit in a circle and pass the ‘Hot Potatoe” or Easter egg around to the song,
Lesson Plan

once the music has been paused, whoever has the egg must teach the
class their pattern. They will first say the rhythm (ie. Ta, ta, ti-ti, Ta),
showing the students their egg, and the class must repeat the rhythm. The
person with the egg will then clap the rhythm and the class must repeat by
clapping it back. Then a new egg will be handed out and the song will
3. If time you can end with the Easter version of Duck, Duck, Goose which
has its own song that the students will sing.

(How will you revisit the main ideas of the lesson, check for understanding, assess
learning, etc?

1. If classes are back to back, the kids love hiding the easter eggs again for
the other classes.
2. Gather everyone on the carpet or in their seats and disucss the lesson and
the patterns. Who had a hard time, who had fun?

Reflection: ​How did it go?
