The students use a listening map to help organize the sounds they hear. The listening map for "Variations on America" tells students about the mood of the music using smiley faces (Music Express Magazine, Octoer/November 2007).
Students moved bingo chips to show which part of the music was heard. They especially loved the variation with the Spanish flavor! There was much dancing!
Pictures of our field trip will be posted to the blog at the end of next week. I am looking forward to our trip and hope the students are too!
