The first grade students have been working in groups on a fun project! They were each assigned to a different character from "Peter and the Wolf" (Peter, Grandpa, Bird, Duck, Cat, Wolf, or Hunters), and selected a percussion instrument to represent their character.
Just like in Prokofiev's composition, each character had a musical theme. The students composed a four beat pattern on their selected percussion instrument as the theme for their character. To complete the activity, we read the book and the students played their theme each time their character was mentioned, as the other group members acted out the story!
