Reading Adventure Pack: Music

Music is the focus of the reading adventure pack. After reading, pupils complete hands-on activities. Scholars use household items to make shakers and cymbals. They listen to eclectic music by turning on the radio, borrowing music from others, watching a concert, singing, and walking outside. Finally, learners use their imagination to create music using a newly invented instrument.
