Music: A Jazz History

Elementary and middle schoolers explore ragtime music and gain an understanding of its relation to jazz music. Youngsters become familiar with the common forms used in ragtime piano pieces, and study syncopation. This interesting lesson has many wonderful in-class activities, opportunities for learners to listen to music, and a terrific whole-class culminating activity.

Lesson Planet has given me great ideas for 3rd grade science hands-on activities! I even got a note from one of my principals observing my class while I was using one of the lessons that I found through this website; she LOVED what I was doing and that the kids were excited and very involved.
