TREMORS - VOLCANOES and EARTHQUAKES
WARM UP with a dance
COMPOSE YOUR OWN RHYTHMS
Use names of famous volcanoes to help us create our own rhythms.
You can either say the name of the volcano to help you, or the Kodaly names, like Ta and Ti etc.
First try them out with clapping and saying the name of each one. You are clapping the syllables of the words.
TRY OUT A PATTERN
MAKE UP YOUR OWN PATTERN
Create your own patterns using the words and write them down.
You can either use the names of the volcanoes, or the Ta’s and the TiTi’s (Kodaly names) or the musical notes. Or all three! You choose.
PLAY YOUR RHYTHM - FIND AN INSTRUMENT
ASK AN ADULT FIRST to make sure you are not going to damage anything.
If you do have a drum, or percussion instrument, that would be ideal.
Find something that you can tap, to play the rhythm. For example, a plastic take away/ice cream tub and a spoon/pen/wooden spoon. Or you can tap gently on the table/chair with pens. Only if you are allowed to.
