Story Idea: Have your teacher read the story of the three little pigs. As the wolf approaches each Little Pig's house, play in a different place on the piano. For the Straw Pig, play high on the piano, showing the weakness of his house. For the Stick Pig, play in the middle of the piano. Finally, end the story with the Brick Pig at the low end of the piano.
