Movement Exercise:

Slow, Slow, slow, slow, quick, quick, quick, quick
Say hello, say hello (and repeat) until the end of the song (use ribbons) walk around in a circle clockwise and then change direction if needed.

You could also do that for these songs (Act them out- just use small excerpts and then get the kids perhaps to draw the feelings or alternately graph the music):

In the Hall of the Mountain King (choose a section):

Soundscape Unit:
  1. Using a basis of looking at found sounds and created sounds within our environment (internal and external).
  2. Then doing a sound effects quiz.
  3. Getting kids to find sounds that they can record.
  4. Doing a sound effect story (see for template) or just fold paper into three ways...
  5. Other idea is to make up your own sound effect story dragging sound effects into Audacity (or other music program) to tell a story. Get the children to use five different sound effects to tell a story. (Easier to limit them). When they do this story, use pictures to demonstrate what type of sound and how long these sounds will go for?
