Book Activities for Violin and Cello by Catherine Greer Joanna Bartel and Alexander Lau
A clever book about 2 mystery musicians making friends as they try to discover who is playing the instrument next door. The inclusion of a musical score makes this an extra special book for any children who enjoy listening to music or who would benefit from starting to listen to music.
The activities are designed for children from Year 1 to Year 3. They include labelling a violin and a cello to see what is the same and different about these instruments, a venn diagram to learn about allegro and adagio music, a simple colouring activity to reveal the hidden item and a musically inspired code cracker activity to teach students about musical notes on a treble stave.
The games below are advertisement free and will open in a new window. They can be played by children online as many times as they like. The Match Up Memory Card Game will allow children to improve their memory while the Maze Game lets them develop strategy and problem solving skills while having fun. These games will also build children's attention, concentration and focus, visual recognition and short-term memory. Enjoy.
