1 Play "Poison Rhythm"
Play Poison Rhythm.
In this lesson, you will:
Play the hiding game for the song "Black Snake."
If you have siblings at home, one of you will hide the "snake" and one will "find" it.
It must be hidden in plain sight. You need a "hider" and a "finder".
The one who hides will guide the "finder" to the snake by singing quieter when the "finder" is far away and louder as they get closer.
Download and complete the dynamics worksheet.
It is a fillable form, so you can complete in online without printing it.
Write the dynamics words out on a piece of paper, write what the symbol is, and then tell what it means.
Make (or print) dynamics cards.
If you don't remember what the symbols mean, review the video above.
You can print these cards from the supporting resources, but you can easily create your own. You'll use these cards in the activity that follows.
Listen to the "Stars and Stripes" march and point to the dynamics that you hear.
This is a challenge for you!
Listen to the "Stars and Stripes" march by Sousa.

You could drum on a bucket!
Use whatever instrument you can find to play along.
You will play most lines 4 times. (Some are just 3)
