Rhythm From Head to Toe for Smart Board

My "Rhythm From Head to Toe" activity is now available for use on Smart Boards.  No cutting out required.  Just touch and dress the doll for an instantaneous rhythm composition. 

This activity has students drag a hat, shirt, bottom, and shoe to dress the paper doll.  By dragging the clothing, students are creating a four beat rhythm pattern from head to toe.  Quarter notes, eighth notes, quarter rests, and sixteenth notes are used.  The patterns can be performed by clapping or body percussion for each different article.  Unpitched percussion or recorders could also play the rhythmic patterns.  Pitch could also be added to the rhythms to compose a rhythmic melody.

Both boy and girl paper doll notebook slides are included.  What a fun way for a class to compose, perform, and create together.

Download it today from my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.

A paper version of this for individual student or group work is also available in my store.
