Description

Your students are songwriters and performers in this engaging winter music project! Using guiding words to help, they will write lyrics and compose the melody for an original winter song, then perform it for the class. Some words are typical for winter... but others are totally random, making this a silly but creative endeavor that your 3rd-6th graders will LOVE.

How does it work?
• Students will work in small groups to write and perform a winter-themed song
• They will select 11 words from buckets or piles to guide them in their lyric writing
• Once the lyrics are written, they will write the melody by color-coding the words to match boomwhacker colors
• Groups will sing and perform their songs using boomwhackers (there ARE non-boomwhacker options for this project detailed in the included teacher materials)

Grade levels:
3-6

Product Includes:
8 slides to use to introduce the project
4 Guiding Word pages to cut and place into buckets or piles to draw from
**There are generic winter words but also secular Christmas-related words, which you can choose to include or not**
