Music Genre Project
Project work often falls under the SESE area.. but why not in music?
If you want to try something different with your class, or you're exploring the notion of 'genre' in music this is the perfect project! The class will love it!
I distributed this task sheet to the children: Music Genre Project . Feel free to download and edit as appropriate to your class.
The children worked individually on a project. I wrote down a variety of different genres on slips of paper and put them in a hat. Children then chose a slip of paper/genre from the hat and worked on this for a week.
This would work well alternatively as a group project.
In order to keep some variety in the projects I distributed the slips of paper. However, if there is a style of music a child is particularly passionate about I would encourage them to go with this!
The children were given a minute to present their projects to the class.
I encouraged the rest of the class to ask questions. They also wrote down one interesting fact they learned for each project which was presented.
This is a great project for a rainy day or as an early finisher activity.
Let me know how it goes for you!
