Erie Canal-Music Class

Fifth graders in music class play a rendition of the song Erie Canal on recorders, finger cymbals, the woodblock, and the guiro. They each practice their parts and then play the whole song with accompaniment. They also create eight-beat rhythm ostinatos on unpitched instruments of their choice and take turns playing them with the refrain of the song.

Lesson Planet allows me to browse through teacher created lesson plans that I can easily adapt to fit with my class materials. I like how I can save plans that I choose so I can go back and find information and resources with ease.
