An action-packed week of learning and fun! Five days of creative and interactive activities to help students discover more about history, geography, language, science, music, and art by listening to and understanding each movement of Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals. As students acquire new knowledge and deepen their understanding of musical motives, rhythm patterns, vocabulary terms and use, and pianistic techniques, they'll be working on composing their own musical pieces based on their favorite animal. A special performance at the end of the camp will give them an opportunity to share all they have learned with family and friends!
[Even though the camp is written as a 5-day curriculum - 2.5 hours/day - it could easily be adapted for a number of different scheduling scenarios. There is even enough material to run it as a 5-week program, if desired!]
The fully downloadble and printable package includes: A 58-page Teacher Curriculum, a 48-page Student Workbook, a Sample Promo Flyer, a Customizable Blank Promo Flyer, and 3 Pages of String Art Design Templates.
