This activity incorporated our Orff instruments, which includes xylophones, glockenspiels, and metallophones. (Thanks to the hard work of the PTO and fundraising by our students and community, we raised enough money to buy some more Orff instruments! Yay!) Then, we added some classroom percussion instruments along with the Orff instruments. Each instrument would enter in succession until all instruments were playing together. It sounded really cool with all those instrument sounds going at the same time! Students were learning simple rhythm/tonal patterns on the instruments, instrument technique, and playing in an ensemble. They loved playing these instruments, and I can't wait to add to our collection!
